Facing any allegations may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
On or about January 9, 2017 a complaint was filed against an LVN in Austin after claims of negligent care were attributed to the death of an elderly patient. The complaint, filed by a companion and personal representative of the estate of the deceased, alleges that the patient suffered a kidney injury and dehydration during her stay at a nursing facility.
According to the complaint, the LVN provided inadequate day-to-day, basic care by neglecting basic needs such as food and liquids, as well as toileting and cleaning.
The complaint claims that the alleged negligent care by the LVN ultimately led to the patient’s death. The report also claims that, during the patient’s stay, the LVN failed to properly staff providers and kept the family in the dark about the patient’s medical condition and health status. They also seek a trial by jury, an undisclosed amount in damages and other equitable relief.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned and disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing. The allegations filed on the LVN were all denied by her. However, she failed to hire an experienced nurse attorney to defend her.
Any nurse who faces criminal cases they wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professionals help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any criminal charge they never committed. This is just one of the many cases the LVN from Austin should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the RN. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
