Accusations are one of the issues that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations against them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an LVN in Texas failed to do so.
At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nursing at a health facility in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately two (2) years.
On or about June 2014, while employed and assigned to provide care for the Patient, the LVN violated the professional boundaries of the nurse/patient relationship in that she borrowed one thousand three hundred dollars ($1,300) from the patient and never repaid the patient. LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the patient of the money.
In regards to the said incident that happened, the LVN states the patient became a close friend, a lot like family. According to the LVN, he offered her $1300 and she accepted but told him she would pay him back. The LVN mentioned she wrote a promissory note. The LVN also stated that when she moved back home, she went through some bad times, but added that she paid a couple of times.
However, the Texas Board of Nursing still disciplined and suspended the LVN due to the lack of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her side.
If you’re facing cases such as this, and you think that additional disciplinary action should not be applied anymore, then be sure to hire a nurse attorney who can fully assist you.
