Nurses are always at risk for accusations of medical malpractice or negligence. If someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from San Antonio, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were charged with negligence and failed to hire an effective nurse attorney. L191022N2982
This is exactly what happened to an LVN in Dallas. Read on to find out her case.
At the time of the incident, the LVN was employed in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for two years and nine months.
On or about March 5, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in Dallas, the LVN allegedly used inappropriate language by calling a patient ”ignorant”. Additionally, while in the waiting room with the patient, the LVN spoke to the patient in a disrespectful and unprofessional manner. Her conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered with or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response to the incident, the LVN states after the patient became upset and agitated, she asked the patient to return to the waiting area with the intention to allow her to calm down and allow another staff member to attempt to screen her. She states she immediately went to her supervisor an informed her of the situation. The LVN further states she went to the waiting area to call her next patient and she states she was met by the patient case manager questioning the situation. The LVN states before she could explain, the patient interjected and began yelling “I told her I had a sexually transmitted disease.”She stated she began to curse and yell and told the patient’s case manager she’s being disruptive and ignorant.
However, without an effective nurse attorney to help her defend her side, the LVN was suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
