Criminal charges use has been a signature specialty of a nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error.
In Irving, an RN was accused of kidnapping and stabbing an elderly woman.
According to the complaint, the RN waited outside the residence of the 85-year-old woman.
When the woman arrived, the RN told her she would show her the location of her jewelry, which the victim had recently reported missing from her home.
Police said the RN then got into the victim’s car and sat in the passenger seat, asking the elderly woman to drive. While driving, the RN allegedly pulled out a knife and informed her victim it was robbery.
In response, the elderly woman allegedly honked on the car’s horn to alert somebody. Police said that’s when the RN began stabbing and hitting the victim. The suspect also threatened to “have the victim’s husband killed.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the RN attended for her career’s security.
However, the RN failed to hire an effective criminal nurse attorney to help her defend her side. As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, especially if she has a good defense to the accusations. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas criminal nurse attorney as well.
