If you also received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing regarding a case or complaint filed on you, you should hire a nurse attorney immediately before it’s too late. Texas nurse attorney Yong J. An is one of those dedicated nurse lawyers who helped various nurses in their cases since 2006.
This is what happened to a certain LVN in Houston in February 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Houston and had been in the position for about a year already.
On or about February 17, 2017, through February 18, 2017, the LVN may have lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she exhibited signs of impaired behavior while on duty, including, but not limited to: erratic and unfocused behavior, visibly shaking, failing three IV insertions on three patients and attempting to clean up blood from failed IV without gloves.
Her conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidence was brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
