It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
In San Antonio, a former LVN is accused to be responsible in the deaths of up to 60 Texas children.
According to accusations, during the LVN’s time working at a San Antonio hospital and a clinic in Kerrville, northwest of San Antonio, children died of unexplained seizures and other complications.
Prosecutors said the nurse lethally injected children at the Kerrville clinic to demonstrate the need for a pediatric intensive care unit at a nearby hospital.
Other prosecutors theorized that the LVN’s tactic was to take swift medical action and save some of her victims, making herself appear to be a sort of miracle worker.
The 66-year-old former LVN indicted T in the deaths of an 8-month-old in 1981 and a 4-month-old a year later. She now faces four new murder charges, all filed in about the last month.
The LVN is serving concurrent 99-year and 60-year sentences in state prison for the 1982 killing of another toddler and the sickening of a 4-week-old boy who survived. She was scheduled for release in March under a mandatory release law in place when she was convicted, but the DA has previously said he’s trying to ensure she never leaves prison because she’s linked to the deaths of many more children who died in the early 1980s either during her shifts or shortly after.
During the hearing, the LVN was not able to provide a good nurse attorney for herself. Therefore, the Board of Nursing placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
Any RN or LVN should never commit errors, criminal charges, negligence or misconduct in work as it may affect their performance, which may lead to further issues to the patients they are taking care of.
