Any nurse who faces any cases they wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professionals help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any charge they never committed. This is just one of the many cases the LVN from El Paso should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On or about May 13, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in El Paso, the LVN was seen on video surveillance and observed by facility staff dragging a patient by her arms while the patient was seated on the floor after she started kicking at the LVN. Additionally, the LVN failed to call a physician when the patient displayed aggressive behavior. Her conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response to the incident, the LVN states when she arrived to work, the facility was understaffed and she observed the patient abusing staff and other residents. The LVN knew the patient had a previous injury to his head, which concerned her when she observed the patient throw himself in a corner. The LVN instructed a staff member to call for help, but no one came, so she tried to assist the patient in his room to prevent him from hurting himself again. The patient continued to hit and strike as the LVN stood behind him to prevent the patient from falling back. The patient then dropped down to the ground and the LVN guided him to his room as he kicked.Despite her explanation, the Texas Board of Nursing still placed her under disciplinary action. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
