A nurse attorney can actually give the best defense possible even if you experienced a simple error at work. This is what a certain LVN should have done when she faced a complaint regarding a very minimal mistake that she committed during her shift at a Dallas hospital. Believe it or not, the incident involved sleeping as the main reason why she was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing.

The incident happened on July 7, 2016, when the LVN was caught sleeping in front of a computer desk in the Dallas-based hospital. She was found by a doctor, who claimed that she was actually snoring and was very comfortable with her sleep. The doctor added that it seems that she was already sleeping for “more than an hour or two” when she was caught.

The resulting action of the LVN might affect her ability to notice signs, changes, and symptoms on the patients she was tasked to take care of. Additionally, it could also cause her to perform poorly when assisting doctors during certain medications and treatments to the patients. The LVN was immediately summoned by the Board of Nursing when they received this report from the doctor who filed the complaint.

The LVN was unable to provide any proper defense due to any lack of nurse attorney for assistance. The lack of assistance caused the Board of Nursing to place her LVN license into disciplinary action to ensure that she will never cause such issues in the future. This is why it’s always better to seek the help of a nurse attorney in order to receive the best protection possible to further secure your career.

Do not let the Texas Board of Nursing provide the sentence to you. Instead, find the right defense in order to find the right punishment based on your actions because a good defense can always provide a good protection, even if it won’t actually save you fully from any accusations or mistakes while at work.
