The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issues from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a Dallas LVN defense lawyer. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened on or about January 2017 to an LVN in Dallas.
On or about January 15, 2017, the LVN provided care to a patient, an eighty-six year old male with chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, as well as other medical problems.
On that day, two nursing assistants at the Facility asked the LVN to contact the patient’s primary care provider or send him to the hospital because the patient’s condition was declining.
The LVN went to the patient’’s room and found that he was becoming confused and experiencing increased shortness of breath. She failed to assess the patient, did not document the patient’s condition in the chart, and did not contact the patient’s primary care provider or his family. Later that day, the patient passed away.
However, due to lack of evidence and an expert nurse attorney to defend her, the LVN was suspended and disciplined.
This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of a RN or LVN is never excused.
Any type of accusations can be defended, as long as there is a skilled Dallas LVN defense lawyer ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The LVN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient Dallas LVN defense lawyer. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
