Whenever someone filed a criminal complaint against you which involves sexual assault, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples.
In Austin, an LVN is charged with sexually assaulting a patient last year while she was a patient.
The 27-year-old LVN was criminally charged with sexual assault after a lab report in February 2017 determined that his DNA was present in the sample obtained from the 45-year-old victim following the alleged attack on June 30, 2016.
According to the alleged victim, she was in the hospital to be treated for a diabetic condition. According to the lawsuit, she notified the nurse’s station when she noticed the area around her catheter was bleeding.
She said the LVN began touching her and when she complained, he said the rubbing was “therapeutic” and wouldn’t stop. He then dragged her to the edge of the bed and sexually assaulted her.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the LVN denies all allegations. However, the Board states that her conduct placed the pharmacy and hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right criminal nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
