It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these. L100715N3485
On or about May 14, 2005,an LVN from Weslaco was arrested for DRIVING WHILE INTOXICATED (a Class B misdemeanor offense).
On or about November 17, 2005, when the LVN submitted a License Renewal Form to the Board of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas, she provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that she answered “No” to the question:
“Have you ever been convicted, adjudicated guilty by a court, plead guilty, no contest or nolo contendere to any crime in any state, territory or country, whether or not a sentence was imposed, including any pending criminal charges or unresolved arrests (excluding minor traffic violations) since your last renewal? This includes expunged offen adjudications with or without prejudice of guilt. Please note that DUIS, DWIs, and PI’s must be reported and are not considered minor traffic violations. (One time minor in possession [MIP] or minor in consumption (MIC] does not need to be disclosed; therefore, you may answer “No.” If you have two or more MIPs or MICs, you must answer “Yes”.)”
Because of this, the LVN was summoned to hear her side of the story. During the hearing, the LVN states that after a party one night, she decided to take her younger brother home. While backing out of the driveway, she only turned on her fog lights so she would not shine the light on the others. The LVN states she forgot to turn the headlights on when she began driving.
Less than 1/2 a block from her house, she was pulled over for not having her headlights on. The officer asked if she had been drinking and the LVN told her he’d had a few drinks with her family. She was given a field sobriety test and then a Breathalyzer test. She was offered a deferred adjudication option, and took it. She also took a DWI class.
The LVN states that since the incident she has stopped drinking and has been sober for over 3 years.
Because of this, the Board of Nursing placed her license to a disciplinary action instead.
