Accusations at work are one of the cases that a San Antonio 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 once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an LVN failed to do so.  

At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a Rehabilitation Center in Amarillo, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and seven (7) months.

On or about March 1 6, 202 1, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN assisted in improperly restraining a patient in that she held down the patient while another nurse administered medication to the patient without her consent. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the use of an improper restraint could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions and/or physical, mental, or emotional harm.

In regards to the incident, the LVN states the patient was very aggressive the night of the incident and also had called the police, stating she was being held against her will. The LVN states another nurse told her a nurse practitioner had ordered a medication for sedation. And also states she told the other nurse the patient would refuse the medication and recommended delaying the administration, however, the other nurse declined and stated they would need to restrain the patient. She states that she instructed the two CNAs that accompanied them for the administration to only use open hands to hold the patient. The LVN was safely administered intramuscularly.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases such as the case mentioned above regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions on whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the LVN  for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed against her – this is the part where a San Antonio nurse attorney should be hired.

Because the LVN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license to disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a San Antonio nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
