In dealing with all nurse cases, it is best to look for not just an attorney but a nurse attorney. Nurse Attorneys know how to handle any nurse cases. You need a well-experienced, skilled, and good nurse attorney if you are issued a Reprimand or a Reproval and if you wish for a renewal of a license after you have complied with all the terms of the order made by the Board. You should know that the right nurse attorney is the best fit to handle such cases.
On or about May 16, 2019, an RN is a License Registered Nurse and was issued a Reprimand by the Nevada State Board of Nursing, Las Vegas, Nevada. And on or about August 20, 2019, another Licensed Registered Nurse was issued a Reproval by the Board of Registered Nursing Department of Consumer Affairs, State of California. And also on or about November 1, 2018, the RN renewed her Texas Registered Nurse license but failed to disclose a Citation issued by the California Board of Registered Nursing on July 23, 2018.
In response, regarding the disciplinary action by Nevada State Board of Nursing, the RN states her attorney informed the Board that the application had glitches in it and the home health agency was negligent in not providing a proper device making the clinician use the personal phone device thereby causing interruptions. The agency had not exercised proper judgment in using an APP which had many defaults. The RN states she told the agency about this but they chose to do nothing. The RN also states that on a visit, she attempted to close the application because the patient was not home and the application froze while it was in an open visit mode. She states the documentation that she was able to do was that the patient was not home but it was done on recertification mode, which she states she did not opt for. The RN states the Board reprimanded her for failing to perform nursing functions in a manner consistent with customary standards. Also, she states that she was publicly reprimanded and has successfully completed courses to sustain her licensure with Nevada.
But in accordance with the response above, to the RN’s situation and to her failing to perform nursing functions, the Board has subjected the RN to take disciplinary action. This decision of the Board was based on Section 301.452(b)(2)&(8), Texas Occupations Code.
Hiring the right nurse attorney to handle your cases is very important for you to surpass such circumstances. A right nurse attorney is indeed the one you need help with. But since the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to fully defend her case, the RN will face disciplinary action.
