Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. This is exactly what happened to an LVN in Fort Worth when she was accused of negligence. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a hospital in Fort Worth and had been in that position for more than two years already.
On or about May 17, 2017, through May 18, 2017, while employed as a staff nurse in a hospital in Fort Worth, the LVN allegedly failed to notify, and/or document the notification of the physician about the change in the level of consciousness of a patient.
The LVN’s conduct deprived the physician the opportunity to institute timely medical interventions to stabilize the patient.
The following day on May 18, 2017, the LVN again failed to appropriately intervene in the care of the patient when he had a significant change in condition.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. In response to the allegations filed against her, the LVN states that she informed the physician of the patient’s change in condition but her documentation is missing from the records.
However, the Board states that her conduct deprived the physician the opportunity to institute timely medical interventions to stabilize the patient.
Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
