The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened to a nurse at a Tyler hospital who has been charged with murder in the death of a patient and is a suspect in at least two other interventions that left patients in vegetative states.
The 34-year old nurse was a registered nurse in a hospital in Tyler. The hospital fired him in February because of “his falsification of care events and his unethical practice related to failure to disclose interventions provided that may have impacted the outcome” of patients’ lives.
According to court documents, the nurse engaged in “unskilled and/or unnecessary and/or inappropriate” interventions with three patients, one of whom died.
The last incident occurred in January when the nurse told officials that he entered a patient’s room and silenced a beeping IV.
Later, he admitted resetting a beeping IV, flushing the arterial line and pumping up the pressure bag.
Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing investigated the nurse and suspended his license.
However, without valid evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined.
This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Any form of gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of an RN or LVN is never excused.
Any criminal case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled criminal nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient criminal nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
