In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the nursing profession. This tribunal is called the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Every RN or LVN subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Board is given an opportunity to be heard and defend himself from all accusations. This every nurse with a pending case before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is to encourage hiring a nurse attorney.
Unfortunately, there are some RN and LVN who fail to find the right nurse attorney to handle their cases. As a result, most of them would be adjudged liable for the complaints. This usually leads to the revocation of a professional nursing license. This is what happened to an LVN in Dallas, Texas. At the time of the incident, she was employed in a hospital and had been in that position for three years already.
On or about June 28, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational in a hospital in Dallas, the LVN swung her fist at a patient after the patient attempted to punch her. Furthermore, a staff member intervened and restrained the patient at which time the LVN swung her fist at the patient again. The LVN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to give her a fair chance to defend her case. She was given the chance to defend herself at the Board.
However, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty for the complaint against her and her license was suspended. She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
