A nurse attorney might be your best hope when facing cases that might cause you to injure or harm a patient. A Texas LVN has caused harm to a patient on June 18, 2019, while the LVN was providing nursing care to the patient, there was an instance that caused the patient’s family to file a complaint to the Texas Board of Nursing against the LVN.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Abilene, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.
An incident happened on or about June 18, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, it was discovered that the LVN misappropriated narcotics belonging to the facility and patients thereof or failed to precautions to prevent such misappropriation. Furthermore, on June 20, 2019, the LVN admitted to a police officer that she had taken the narcotics that were missing.
In response to the incident, the LVN admits to taking the narcotics. The LVN also admits to being addicted to opioids for the past two years and that she has tried to stop but it keeps escalating.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty of the complaint that was filed against her by the patient’s family and her LVN license was suspended. She lost the case simply because the LVN failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Having a nurse attorney for the defense could have changed the outcome of the case, where the outcome could be in her favor but unfortunately, it is the opposite.
