Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for the case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them.
On or about May 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Silsbee, the LVN exceeded her scope of practice when she failed to make an appropriate assignment to an unlicensed person in that performance of an I&O catheterization requires delegation by a Registered Nurse (RN).
Her conduct was likely to injure the resident in that the unlicensed employee did not have the education and skills necessary to safely perform the delegated task.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the hearing, the RN states she doesn’t recall ever delegating an I&O cath to anyone. She also states she was informed by the other nurses at the hospital that a nursing student could perform this task with supervision.
The case could have resulted in a lesser disciplinary action by the Board of Nursing, only if the LVN hired an effective defense attorney to help her win her case.
Negligence could compromise your career, which is why a Texas defense attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
