A Fort Worth LVN lawyer is the one who can help any LVN who commits any violation against the Texas Board of Nursing. The nursing profession is not an easy journey. Every practicing LVN holder in the state of Texas is required to follow certain rules and regulations imposed by the government. These laws and statutes were implemented to ensure that the safety of the patients is protected by the state.
A LVN who commits any violation can place her LVN license in jeopardy. The Texas Board of Nursing has the authority to revoke or suspend an RN license in the country for as long as there is a justifiable reason. For this reason, LVN should seek help from an experienced Fort Worth LVN lawyer.
On or about January 1, 2012 through December 1, 2012, while employed as an LVN in a Home Care Center in Texas, the LVN exposed his genitals to her patient. In addition, she told the patient not to tell anyone and keep it confidential. The LVN’s conduct clearly violated the boundaries of the nurse client relationship and exploited the patient.
On or about November 16, 2014, while still employed in the same home care center in Texas, the LVN again violated the professional boundaries of the nurse/client relationship in that she assaulted a patient in a sexual manner. The LVN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and psychological harm to the patient and may have caused delayed distress for the patient, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient until harmful consequences occur.
LVN was given the chance to defend her case. The LVN vehemently denies the allegations but agreed to voluntarily surrender to avoid the cost of litigation and negative publicity it would bring.
However, the Texas Board of Nursing eventually found the LVN guilty and her LVN license was disciplined.
In another incident, an LVN license was suspended and disciplined after a complaint was filed against her and she failed to properly present her case with a Fort Worth LVN lawyer.
The LVN stated that in November of 2015, she was working as charge nurse in the ER in Fort Worth. She took a picture of a combative patient that was being held down by four staff members. She then took the photo and showed the ER physician what was going on in the room. She was telling him if he did not do something, the patient or a staff member was going to get injured. Prior to the request for him to intervene had fall on deaf ears. After seeing the picture on her phone he finally came to the room and incubated the patient. She was concerned to patient and staff safety and felt like she had no other choice, because he was not listening and not coming out of the room to see the actual situation. She now realizes that she could and should have followed the chain of command for assistance from someone with more authority. She also had knowledge of a co-worker taking a picture of an arm laceration that she did not promptly report to her manager.
