Any administrative or criminal cases such as illegal drug use or fraudulent acts have been a signature specialty of a Tyler nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error. L100415N3047
On or about May 1, 2008 through August 15, 2008, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Tyler, the LVN obtained controlled substances for patients of the hospital through the use of unauthorized, fraudulent oral or telephonically communicated prescriptions.
Further, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in the same medical facility, the LVN obtained controlled substances for an individual that was personally known to her, and never seen as a patient by any doctor at the said hospital in Tyler.
This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the LVN attended for her career’s security.
The Texas Board of Nursing investigated the LVN and suspended her license.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her LVN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a criminal nurse attorney for assistance if she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.
So if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Tyler Nurse Attorney Yong J.
