Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney in League City assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke, suspend, or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
At the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational
Nurse in a medical facility in League City and had been in that position for thirteen years and three months.
On or about August 25, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in League City, the LVN failed to timely identify and report the sustained, abnormal heart rhythms of a patient. Subsequently, after fifteen minutes with abnormal heart rhythms, the patient experienced a cardiac arrest. Her conduct delayed the patient’s emergent physician care and may have contributed to the patient’s change in cardiac condition.
In response to the incident, the LVN states she notified the primary nurse when a patient had a 17 beat run of ventricular tachycardia (an abnormal rhythm) 2040. She states she notified the charge nurse at 2115 because the patient’s heart rate was dropping, and shortly after, the charge nurse called a code.
Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN. Too bad she failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her defend her side. If you are a Nurse in League City who has any disciplinary issues before the Texas Board of Nursing, please contact a Nurse Attorney in League City, attorney Yong J. An, call or text at 832 428 5679 or email@example.com. Mr. An is a nurse attorney in League City that has represented over 100 nurses before the Texas Board of Nursing since 2006.
