An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a Bryan nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
One such incident happened to an LVN in 2010. During the time of the incident, she was currently employed as LVN in a medical facility in Bryan, Texas.
On or about July 19, 2010, while employed as a private duty nurse, the LVN abandoned a patient, by leaving her at home alone, unsupervised, her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patient not getting the care that he needed, and placed the patient at risk for injury due to lack of adult supervision.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that she did inform the grandmother of the patient that she had to leave at 5:30 p.m. to pick up her daughter from a park across town. She was loading her bags into the car when she saw the patient’s grandmother pull into the driveway and made eye contact with her prior to leaving. The patient was asleep in his hospital bed. Feedings had been administered and his diaper was clean and dry. Then at 5:45, as she was leaving the park, she received a call from the hospital in Pediatrics saying the patient called at 6:06 pm, stating that her grandchild had been left alone.
However, she was not able to provide a good and experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her side of the story.
Because of the incident, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good Bryan nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
