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 Dallas on March 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in the position for about ten months.
On March 2017, a patient was being transferred from a bed to a chair when she was dropped by the LVN at a medical care facility. The patient apparently suffered significant head injuries as well as hip and leg fractures as a result of the fall. The patient was admitted to a local hospital for treatment of her injuries.
Unfortunately, the patient died only 12 hours after being admitted to the hospital. The cause of death was listed as cardio-respiratory distress and complications from a hip/pelvic fracture. The deceased patient’s husband filed a lawsuit against the medical facility, alleging that negligence by the LVN directly attributed to his wife’s untimely death. The complaint seeks damages in excess of $75,000 related to loss of retirement and Social Security benefits as well as related costs.
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 drug screening results were brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges related to drug use. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
