Dealing with a case or any criminal case is never easy for a nurse to handle. Some RNs and LVNs missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation only because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any complaints or any cases over them can be denied or resolved over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance.
An LVN from Abilene was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Denton and had been in that position for five (5) months.
The LVN had seen to be lacking the ability or not being fit to practice nursing and engaged in the intemperate use of Amphetamines and Methamphetamines in that she produced a hair specimen for a drug screen that resulted positive for Amphetamines and Methamphetamines. On or about January 4, 2015, the LVN admitted to the staff of Child Protective Services (CPS) that she engaged in substance abuse.
Additionally, on or about February 1, 2016, the Child Protective Services (CPS) division of the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services issued a Reason to Believe finding against the LVN for Neglectful Supervision of the two victims. The finding by Child Protective Services (CPS) was based in part on concerns of illegal drug use. Unlawful possession of Amphetamines and Methamphetamines is prohibited by Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health & Safety Code. The use of Amphetamines and Methamphetamines by a 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.
Then on or about February 16, 2018, Respondent was arrested by the Police for MAN/DEL CS PG 1+=4G<200G, a First Degree felony offense, and is presently pending.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that she completed all of her recommended services by CPS. The LVN states that from January 2016 through September 2016, she was unaware of any requirements from the Board of Nursing due to living in a shelter.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
