If you also received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) regarding a case or complaint filed against you, hiring a nurse attorney is needed to help you undergo such difficulty. Texas nurse attorney Yong J. An is one of those dedicated nurse attorneys who helped various nurses in their cases since 2006. 

A nurse from Texas was experiencing such difficulty. At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital facility in New Braunfels, Texas, and had been in that position for two years.

On or about January 5, 2020, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, and assigned to provide skilled nursing care to a patient, the LVN repositioned the patient multiple times with swift movements, including grasping the patient by her underarms and flipping the patient. Additionally, the LVN failed to notice the patient’s weighted blanket had fallen over the patient’s face. The LVN’s conduct could have caused the patient harm by not adhering to patient care standards and could have interfered with or disrupted this patient’s treatment.

In response, the LVN states after viewing the videos, she can see how the situation was misconstrued and she wishes she could have explained the situation because she cared for this patient and her family and hates how the situation appeared. The LVN states that the patient was experiencing diarrhea which necessitated the repositioning of objects and the patient. The LVN stated she was cleaning the client and intended to push the blanket out of the way and as soon as she saw the blanket was over her lower face, she pulled it back to where she intended the blanket to initially be placed. The LVN states she was aware there was a video recording her care of the patient.

However, the LVN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license to disciplinary proceedings.

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN the chance of a legal counsel to assist her with the case but failed to do so. 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.
