Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a criminal nurse attorney.
On or about April 7, 2016, a patient collapsed upon the floor of his room while being assisted by hospital staff. The LVN discovered the patient unresponsively and prone, but still breathing, when she responded to and took control over the scene.
The patient did not have a Do Not Resuscitate Order. The LVN failed to stay with or leave the patient adequately supervised.
Additionally, the LVN failed to properly assess the patient and failed to utilize the facility’s Automated External Defibrillator.
The LVN also failed to properly attempt and apply resuscitation techniques. Subsequently, she failed to keep her Basic Life Support skills current and active.
EMS found the patient in cardiac arrest and transported him to the hospital where he was subsequently pronounced dead.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the defense, the LVN denied all the allegations against her.
However, the LVN without the help of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
