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 be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in El Paso, Texas, and had been in that position for nine (9) months.
On or about May 8, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN failed to safely position the patient in a recliner in that the LVN pulled the patient forward by one arm, put a pillow behind the patient, and then released the patient’s arm prior to the patient’s backside touching the pillow. Additionally, the LVN dragged the patient on the floor by the patient’s elbows. Furthermore, the incidents were captured on video surveillance wherein the LVN was heard using profanity and making a reference to liking cocaine in the presence of the patient. The LVN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered with or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response, the LVN stated she placed a blanket and pillows on the floor and laid the patient on top of them, and then transferred the patient to the recliner and placed a pillow behind the patient for back support.
Because of the incident, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing. 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.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
