Nurses facing cases they never committed or wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation or any charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the RN from Houston should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On or about October 2, 2012, the RN discussed personal issues and her stress level with a patient. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient.
In addition, her conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur.
On or about October 2, 2012, the RN violated the professional boundaries of the nurse-client relationship, in that she discussed using crystal meth and smoking crack with a patient. The RN asked the patient’s sitter to leave the room, making the patient uncomfortable.
The RN proceeded to show the patient pictures on her phone and referred to the individuals in the pictures as her “fuck buddies. The RN also showed the patient a picture of a man’s penis. Her conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur,
The RN was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. However, despite her explanation, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
