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.
In Houston, an RN has been arrested and charged with an accident involving death, a second-degree felony.
According to the Texas Board of Nursing, the accused is a registered nurse in the state of Texas and resides in League City.
According to statements, a 45-year-old League City man was riding a bicycle around 2:30 a.m morning when he was struck by what appeared to be a gray or silver four-door vehicle.
The man was taken to the nearest where he was later pronounced dead from head injuries he suffered during the incident.
League City police released a video after the accident of a woman asking a security guard at the front of the gated Waterford Harbor community for help repairing a part of her vehicle, which matched the description of the vehicle that hit the man.
It is now believed that that woman in the video is the RN.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. However, the RN 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.
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).
