The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.
One of the best examples where a client failed to hire the right nurse attorney will be discussed in this case.
On or about November 27, 2016, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a medical facility in Austin, the LVN administered Solumedrol, a pre-medication administered prior to Ambisome, to a patient; however, she failed to administer the Ambisome in a timely manner.
Subsequently, the Ambisome had to be temporarily stopped while the second dose of Solumedrol was administered. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from a delay in care.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. During the hearing, the LVN states the two (2) medications were not linked together in the order set as is normal procedure; therefore, she was not prompted to administer the Solumedrol as a pre-medication.
However, the LVN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined warning to a suspension of her license by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
Having all these problems was never easy and should never be dealt with alone. You need someone who can help you at times like these, someone that is very reliable and knows what to do if you are facing such allegations or accusations. Any problem always has a solution.
Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
