Serious offenses are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, a RN in El Paso failed to do so.

On or about December 2, 2002, two brothers claim that negligent care by the RN caused the death of their father. According to the complaint, the father suffered a broken leg from a fall at his home and was taken to a local hospital for treatment. The father was admitted to the hospital, as it was determined he also suffered from diabetes, renal failure and dementia. During his stay at the hospital, the man apparently had his leg amputated. It is alleged that negligent care caused bed sores as big as fists to develop on the man’s backside.

The complaint assert that the RN staff hid information about their father from them and also denied their requests to transfer their father to another medical facility. After a 118 day stay at the hospital, the father reportedly died suffering from gangrene, bed sores and malnutrition at the time of his death. According to the complaints, this was evidence of negligent care and they hold the RN responsible for the death of their father.

Because of this, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

Serious offenses may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

The Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
