An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
On or about May 9, 2011, an LVN from Houston was accused of ASSAULT-FAMILY MEMBER, a Class A misdemeanor offense, committed on February 12, 2010.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the hearing, the LVN explains that this incident happened in 2009, when she was physically attacked by her daughter. She states that she did not know that charges had been filed until she was arrested during a routine traffic stop. The LVN admits that she pled guilty to protect her daughter from any harm that could have arisen for her if she had gone to jail.
However, she was not able to provide a good and experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her side of the story.
Because of the incident, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license.The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
