Any type of accusations or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled and experienced nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
Accusations regarding negligence are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an LVN in Lubbock wherein several accusations are filed against about her negligence at work.
On or about June 12, 2016, through June 13, 2016, while employed in a medical facility in Lubbock, Texas, the LVN failed to notify the patient’s physician when she was unable to obtain a blood pressure reading at 8:20pm, when the patient had blood pressures of 150/102 at 10:15pm and 153/92 at 11:25pm, nor when his blood pressure was unobtainable at 3:33am the following morning.
This conduct by the LVN was likely to injure the patient from complications of continued high blood pressure and deprived the physician of the opportunity to institute timely medical interventions.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side. Unfortunately, there was no response on the side of the LVN and that the Board of Nursing was not able to reach the side of the LVN.
Because of this incident, 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.
