If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit mistakes that endanger their license and could possibly lead to jail.
In Houston, a 33-year old RN was accused of two counts of felony child abuse. According to accusations, the RN was working as a pediatric nurse at Texas hospital when a child abuse specialist at the hospital became suspicious as the child’s visits became more frequent over an 18-month period.
The nurse first brought her daughter to the hospital on November 2011 and said the child could not eat or hold down solid food. A feeding tube was inserted into the girl’s abdomen.
The RN was charged in April 2014. Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a 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.
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 nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
