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 a South Dallas nurse when she was accused of sexually assaulting elderly patient.
According to the complainant, the nurse reached under her blankets and tried to shove her hand between her legs as she continued to resist. She then climbed on top of her and tried to rip the blankets off of her.
Additionally, the nurse wasn’t scheduled to work in that area, and that surveillance videos show her entering the resident’s room and staying there for seven minutes.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the RN said she is very upset by the allegations and that she is innocent. She said she believes it could be a misunderstanding.
Because of the incident, the RN 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.
