There are instances where a nurse attorney can be very useful whenever an RN or an LVN faced criminal charges, complaints, or any accusations. Patients tend to file complaints immediately whenever they experience poorly regarding patient care during treatment. But any RN or LVN can defend themselves when such a thing happens.

On or about March 30, 2020, an RN from North Richland Hills, Texas submitted a Timely License Renewal Form to the Texas Board of Nursing and answered “Yes” to the criminal history question. The RN disclosed that on December 20, 2019, the RN entered a plea of Guilty and was convicted of MISPRISION OF FELONY, a felony offense. As a result of the conviction, the RN was placed on probation for a period of one (1) year and Ordered to pay a fine and court costs.

Respondent states she made some poor decisions at work. In June 2017 she resigned from her position and investigators came and spoke to her a few weeks later. She agreed to a voluntary interview with them. The investigators were looking into illegal activities, mainly the bringing of drugs into the facility. Respondent had no knowledge of the illegal drugs, but did mention that she gave a sample of cologne and an energy drink to an inmate, which is considered contraband.

As a result, of the RN’s conduct, the RN will be facing disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing and may receive further sanctions. The evidence received is sufficient to prove that there is a violation and that the RN may be subjected to license suspension or revocation due to her conduct.
