Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them.

This LVN from Houston, Texas happens to be one of them.

On or about February 4, 2018, the LVN engaged in the intemperate use of Butalbital, Codeine, Morphine, Hydrocodone, and Hydromorphone, in that she produced a specimen for a reasonable suspicion drug screen which resulted positive for Butalbital, Codeine, Morphine, Hydrocodone, and Hydromorphone.

The use of Butalbital, Codeine, Morphine, Hydrocodone, and Hydromorphone by a Registered Nurse, while subject to call or duty, could impair the nurse’s ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in a patient’s condition, and could impair the nurse’s ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing a patient in potential danger.

The LVN was given the chance to defend herself. In response to the complaint filed against her, the LVN states on February 1, 2018, she walked into her home in severe pain and her father gave her one of his Fioricet. She states she had no health insurance and could not afford to go to the emergency room.

However, due to lack of evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was disciplined and her LVN license has been subjected for a revocation.

Losing your LVN or RN license can compromise your career. However, a skilled nurse attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your nurse license case, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
