An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a criminal nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
In El Paso, a 25-year old LVN attempted suicide after testing positive for Cocaine on an employer requested drug screen.
According to the hospital staff where the LVN worked, she entered monitoring through IPN. While being monitored, she was evaluated at least twice, receiving diagnoses of Cocaine Abuse and depression.
While being monitored, the LVN also experienced multiple relapses on Cocaine.
The LVN’s most recent relapse resulted in her receiving a treatment recommendation to participate in long-term residential treatment.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, the LVN did not show up during the hearing. She also failed to hire an effective criminal nurse attorney to defend her side.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing for being unable to practice nursing with reasonable skill and safety to patients due to the use of alcohol, drugs and/or narcotics.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good criminal nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
