Nursing assessment skills are one of the nurse’ most valuable assets. This is the main reason why whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence, assault or misdemeanor, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
In Houston, an LVN is under investigation for getting too personal. According to complaints, the incident happened on August 11, 2011.
The Houston Police are investigating a complaint by a female patient against the LVN when a 31-year old complainant states the RN touched her inappropriately.
The assault, which at this time is not categorized as a sexual offense, reportedly occurred July 6. Police say the nurse is an employee of the hospital and not affiliated with one of the many private medical practices housed within the building..
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the trial, the RN defended and explained her case. However, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN. The Board stated that she should not do things which could exceed the limitations of the nurse-patient relationship.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
