Registered nurses are important to healthcare in Texas. That’s why when something goes wrong, the blame is to spread around to everyone involved. This is why a San Antonio nurse lawyer is needed when a file was charged against an RN.

This is what an RN from San Antonio should have done when she was accused by one of her patients.

At the time of the incident, the RN was employed in a medical facility in Lubbock and had been employed in the facility for three years. On or about August 1, 2019, through January 9, 2019, while employed in a medical teaching facility in Lubbock, the RN allegedly sent inappropriate text messages to a student soliciting sexual acts.

This conduct of hers may have caused delayed distress for the student, which may not be recognized or felt by the student until harmful consequences occur.

The Texas Board of Nursing took action to the case, summoning the RN to defend against the allegation. During the hearing, the RN quickly denies the allegations against her and says everything was just a mistaken identity.
In addition, the RN states sometimes the conversations between her and her students and co-workers could be seen as inappropriate, but it was playful and without meaning.

Unfortunately, the RN failed to hire a good San Antonio nurse lawyer to help her defend her case.

The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.

As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing decided to sentence her license to disciplinary action to ensure that she will never commit such acts again. It may be okay to get close to a patient or student. But make sure that it’s within the scope of your own practices, as it can cause problems and may cause further harm and issues to anyone.

The case would have yielded a different result if the RN was able to hire a San Antonio nurse lawyer. So if you also have the same cases or concerns, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J.
