False accusations are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an LVN in San Antonio failed to do so.

On or about February 1, 2018, while employed in a hospital in San Antonio, the LVN lacked fitness to practice nursing in that she admitted to having a “drinking problem” and to drinking regularly.

This conduct by the LVN conduct could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions 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 to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

During the defense, the LVN states she has been honest about her alcohol problem, the substance abuse is no longer in her life, and would like help.

Alcohol abuse may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

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 LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a 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.
