It’s best to seek the help of a skilled 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.
On or about May 8, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Houston, Texas, and assigned to the children’s unit, the RN forcefully shoved a patient.
In addition, the RN admitted to pushing the patient. Her conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. During the hearing, the RN states she walked over to the patient to de-escalate; the patient began bumping his chest against hers and threatening her verbally. The RN further states after multiple requests for him to stop trying to harm her, she extended both her hands forward to regain her personal space.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
