Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Mesquite, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were accused of negligence. 

At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Nurse Practitioner at a medical facility in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that position for only ten (10) months.

On or about October 23, 2019, through November 21, 2019, the RN  practiced outside her authorized scope of practice in the role of Acute Care Adult/Gerontology Nurse Practitioner by performing suction-assisted lipectomy with tumescent lidocaine anesthesia for six patients without sufficient medical supervision given her licensure, training, and experience.

In response, the RN states she has fully cooperated with the Board’s investigation and has been completely forthcoming. In addition, the RN, on her own initiative, completed remedial education courses and ceased all med spa work over a year ago. Additionally, the RN states that any practice outside her authorized scope of practice was unintentional.

Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the RN’s license. 

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. 

Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation same as that of the RN 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.
