Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in College Station, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) years and ten (10) months.
It was on or about February 13, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to follow the Chest Pain Protocol and obtain an electrocardiogram (EKG) on arrival for the patient, who arrived at the Emergency Department at 19:07 with a report of generalized weakness, status post-fall, and chest pain with exertion for the past three weeks. Subsequently, the patient underwent cardiac catheterization later that night for acute myocardial infarction. The said RN’s conduct resulted in a delay of care and was likely to injure the patient in that the delay placed the patient at risk of death or complications from a heart attack.
Because of this, the LVN has been subjected to discipline and her license was suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
If you ever undergo cases such as this, it’s best to seek the assistance of a good nurse attorney as it could make the case better in your favor. Be sure to find a nurse attorney who’s experienced and knowledgeable in several nurse cases to ensure the best assistance possible.
