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 RN 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 to an LVN who was then employed in a medical center in Dallas.
At the time of the incident, the LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for three weeks and two days.
On or about November 27, 2016, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse and assigned to monitor multiple residents, the LVN was observed sleeping.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that she was not sleeping. She further states that she quit the job because she does not sanction the manner in which the facility was run. She believes that the complaint to the Nursing Board by her Employer is motivated by her earlier complaint that the Clinic was not operating in accordance with the State requirements.
However, due to lack of evidence and an expert Dallas RN lawyer 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 RN 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 RN lawyer. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
