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 RN in 2015. During the time of the incident, she was currently employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Houston, Texas.
On or about October 6, 2015, the RN was accused of INTOXICATION ASSAULT W/VEHICLE SBI, a 3rd Degree Felony offense committed on February 22, 2014.
Because of this, the RN was asked to appear at the court to hear her side of the story. The RN said during the hearing that she met a friend for dinner. She left the restaurant and recalls reaching for a bottle of lotion on the floorboard of her car. The next thing she remembers is waking up in the hospital.
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.
