When 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 from El Paso who failed to hire a good nurse attorney to help her defend her case.
During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed in a medical facility in El Paso and had been in that position for just six months.
On or between October 20, and October 21, 1998, the LVN removed six 75 mg vials of Demerol from the Pyxis Machine.
Demerol is a schedule II controlled substance that has a high potential for abuse and may lead to severe psychological or physical dependence. The LVN did not have a prescription for or a legitimate purpose engaging in the possession of Demerol.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. They interviewed the LVN. During the hearing, the LVN admitted that she diverted the aforementioned Demerol and had been diverting Demerol for approximately two weeks.
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 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.
