When the Texas Board of Nursing has a complaint against you, you should seek the nurse attorney. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case such as revocation or suspension of her RN or LVN license. The trend is for employers to refer a case to the Texas Board of Nursing to discipline nurse and at the same time terminate your employment in most of the cases.
One of the best examples include the following:
On or about May 29, 2017, while employed as a staff nurse in a home health service center in Houston, the RN was observed to be sleeping while on duty.
Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it adversely affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in the patient’s conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patient in potential danger.
The RN admits to the allegation of dozing off during her shift. She also explains she recognizes the responsibility of providing adequate nursing care and will ensure that this does not occur in the future.
As a result, her license was disciplined and suspended. She could have avoided the suspension only if she seek help from an experienced nurse attorney.
