The nurse attorney might be your best hope when you’re facing cases that might caused you to injure a patient. A Texas LVN caused an injury to a patient in July 25, 2016 while she was providing home service to the elderly patient. This was an instance which caused the patient’s family to immediately file a case against the LVN.
The LVN was tasked to provide the right maintenance medicine, along with assistance in the patient’s therapy and other tasks such as feeding him. During the said date, the LVN was providing a specialized home treatment to a patient, aged 90, who suffered from a stroke. She injured the patient with a broom while she was cleaning the spilled food that the elderly patient threw away.
Little did the LVN knew that there was a camera installed at the patient’s home, and the family happened to be monitoring it for safety reasons. It appears that their safety measure was a good choice to have at their home because they found on that day that the patient was suffering from a bruise and was crying for hours. The said incident would have placed the patient in further injury, and the family was lucky that the patient did not suffer from any consequences due to the stress he experienced.
The family then escalated the situation right away to the Texas Board of Nursing. With enough evidence to show the horrors of the LVN’s misconduct, and due to a lack of nurse attorney, the Board placed her LVN license to suspension. This is why a nurse attorney is important for them to evaluate your case in order to provide a proper defense on your behalf.
There may be instances where the LVN did the act due to self-defense or the LVN might have accidentally hit the patient. But without any proper consultation, your LVN license will surely get suspended. For further assistance, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J.
