Facing any misdemeanor allegations may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

An instance wherein a misdemeanor behavior was charged against an LVN happened on or about July 1, 2017, when the LVN failed to secure the safety of the patient while she was on duty.

On the said date, a woman whose mother was admitted for treatment sued the LVN. She claims that her mother was a victim of numerous falls and assaults. The woman’s mother complained that the LVN did not bathe her and that another patient had hit her.

As a result of the multiple falls, the woman broke her arm and her hip. Due to a nursing shortage, she did not receive adequate care. In lieu of hiring additional nurses, the facility hired nursing educators who do not see patients. The patient’s daughter sued the LVN for neglect.

The Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN to a hearing to defend her side. However, she failed to properly defend her case by not hiring the perfect attorney for her case.

In another incident, a male patient had been admitted to a medical facility in Dallas and was left unsupervised by an LVN while eating a meal. The patient choked on his food. The choking caused a brain injury and a heart attack that resulted in the patient’s death.

The family has brought a lawsuit against the LVN. They say the LVN has made a ‘reckless disregard’ for the patient’s health, safety, and well-being. The suit further states that the facility should have been aware that there were employees who were not equipped or qualified to provide the appropriate level of care.

Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the LVN. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
