Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for the case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them. Unfortunately, a RN from Chamber County, Texas happens to be one of them.
On or about March 3, 2018, while licensed as a Registered Nurse, the RN was diagnosed with Alcohol Use disorder, Severe, and Unspecified Anxiety disorder. On or about April 16, 2018, she withdrew from Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (TPAPN).
Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side of the story. She states she opted out of TPAPN as they mandated that her employer sign a contract that would prohibit her from performing her work duties. She states at the time of the assessment that the dual diagnosis was given she had successfully completed IOP (Intensive Outpatient Rehab) and an active participant in the aftercare program.
Serious offenses may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
Losing your LVN or RN license can compromise your career. However, a skilled nurse attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your nurse license case, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
