Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about December 19, 2015, an LVN from Fort Worth lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she exhibited signs of impairment. Specifically, was observed stumbling, incoherent and disoriented. The LVN’s movements were uncoordinated causing him to stumble and fall sideways. After getting her belongings, the LVN departed the home only to return five (5) more times for other items she perceived to be forgotten. The Licensed Vocational Nurse was observed attempting to enter the observer’s car after never being able to enter his car. The LVN’s condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, and/or changes in the hospice patient’s condition, and could have affected his ability to make rational, accurate, appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions thereby placing the patient in potential danger
The LVN was summoned before the Board to defend against the case. But without the proper help from a good defense attorney, the LVN lost the case and she was disciplined and suspended.
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.
