The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations as well as charged with a case may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a Lubbock nurse attorney. L100417N1287

At the time of the incident, the LVN was employed in a hospital in Lubbock and had been in this position for approximately one month.

On or about December 2007, through March 2008, the LVN violated professional boundaries of the nurse/client relationship in that she engaged in a physical relationship with a patient. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient.

On or about December 28, 2008, the LVN submitted a Texas Board of Nursing License Renewal Form which she answered “yes” to the following question:

“In the past 5 years, have you been diagnosed with or treated or hospitalized for schizophrenia or other psychotic disorder, bipolar disorder, paranoid personality disorder, antisocial personality disorder or a borderline personality disorder?”

On March 13, 2009, the Board received letters from her treating psychiatrist which stated she was diagnosed with Bipolar II Disorder, is in good standing with treatment and is compliant with therapy.

When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined by violating Texas Board of Nursing regulation.

Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
