Getting intoxicated by alcohol while at work or while driving is a serious case, which is why a San Antonio nurse defense lawyer is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario.
Unfortunately, there are some RNs and LVNs who thought they were guilty of the charges and failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it’s the doom for their license already.
But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
On July 15, 2014, an RN from San Antonio was convicted of Driving While Intoxicated, an offense she allegedly committed on May 3, 2013.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN explains that she was out with her friends and had one too many drinks. The RN explains that on her way home, she was pulled over for failing to signal lane change and was arrested and charged for Driving While Intoxicated.
The Texas Board of Nursing thus finds that there exists serious risk to public health and safety as a result of impaired nursing care due to the intemperate use of controlled substances. And even though the LVN had the chance to explain her side to the Texas Board of Nursing, her lack of an effective nurse attorney to help her resulted in her disciplinary actions.
The case could have resulted in a lesser disciplinary action by the Board of Nursing, only if the RN hired an effective nurse attorney to help her win her case.
