In a Nurse-Patient relationship, there are boundaries that are set to avoid misunderstanding and to avoid personal feelings or emotions involved during treatment. It is also on the part of the nurses to be nice and kind to their patients to avoid emotional distress. However, if you are found to be in arguments with a patient, you just need to be prepared in case a complaint or summon from the Texas Board of Nursing will happen. Being prepared means having a nurse attorney as your legal counsel to represent you before the Texas Board of Nursing.

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
