Any type of criminal charges can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
Accusations regarding sexual assault are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an LVN in Humble when police arrested and accused of sexually assaulting a patient.
Humble police arrested the LVN who allegedly sexually assaulted a female patient at the hospital where the LVN was working.
According to Humble police, the incident occurred June 25, 2015, while the female was a patient at the hospital and the LVN was working as an attending nurse.
According to accusations, the patient was in the hospital suffering from seizures when the LVN allegedly entered her room and gave the patient a pill which limited the patient’s speech and movement once the effects began to kick in.
The victim identified the LVN, leading to a warrant and probable cause documents filed for the LVN’s arrest.
However, without the valid reason and defense to properly explain her side, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
