Accusations are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in San Antonio failed to do so.

On or about February 1, 2014, through August 13, 2015, the RN practiced as a Registered Nurse without a valid license. Board records indicate that her license expired on January 31, 2014, and was not renewed until August 13, 2015. Her conduct misled patients, their families, fellow caregivers, and the public into believing the RN’s nursing practice was in compliance with all Board Rules and Regulations.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

As a defense to the complaints filed against her, the RN denied everything including the alleged negligence. She states she attempted to renew her license online in January 2014 and believed it went through. She asserts her renewal may not have been processed due to a computer error or because she had to cancel her credit cards due to her purse being stolen around that time. The RN further states that in August 2015, her employer notified her that her nursing license has expired. She further states she immediately submitted the paper renewal and stopped practicing until her license was renewed.

Accusations may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
