An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
One such incident happened to an LVN on or about June 2017. During the time of the incident, she was currently employed as a staff nurse in a hospital in Austin, Texas.
On or about June 27, 2017, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a medical facility in Austin, the LVN failed to verify the correct laboratory tube was used to obtain a blood specimen from a patient, who had a fever. Subsequently, there was a delay in obtaining lab results for the patient.
The LVN’s conduct exposed the patient to the risk of harm by depriving the physician of vital information that would be required to institute timely medical interventions to stabilize the patient’s condition.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. She states the error was caused by supply staff who placed a gold-colored blood draw tube in the bin normally used for the yellow-colored blood draw tubes.
Because of the incident, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
