Providing care to patients is the sole responsibility of an RN or an LVN. Any negligence or improper care is given to patients can be the doom of your career and license. So never hesitate to look for a nurse attorney in Texas for help and to protect your license from suspension or revocation.
At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Arlington, Texas, and had been in that position for thirteen (13) years and nine (9) months.
An incident happened on or about July 4, 2020, through July 5, 2020, the LVN roughly repositioned the patient by one (1) arm and one (1) leg, tightly gripped the patient’s right upper arm, resulting in bruises to the patient’s arm, and made vulgar verbal remarks. The LVN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In regards to the incident, the LVN states she was stressed, tired, and depressed and lost her patience with the patient, and handled him more roughly than necessary. The LVN relates the patient’s bruising was consistent with her holding the patient tightly as she maneuvered him and that she is ashamed of the language she used.
Therefore, as a result of the LVN’s misconduct in the above incident, it caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary action. She should have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
