Being an RN in Texas is not an easy thing to do. There are so many things that you need to take into consideration if you want to continue using your nursing license. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) can suspend your RN license whenever you are found liable for any violation. As a matter of fact, the Board can even order for the revocation of your license with finality. To avoid this from happening, it is crucial to look for a nurse attorney to help you properly defend your license.
Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened to an RN in San Antonio, Texas. During the time of the incident, she was employed in a healthcare facility and had been in that position for two years already.
On or about October 3, 2015, the RN called the room of a patient and confronted the patient’s daughter regarding an unsatisfactory patient concern, after her assignment with the hospital was canceled.
This conduct by the RN may have caused delayed distress for the patient’s daughter, which may not be recognized or felt by the daughter until harmful consequences occur.
In response to accusations filed against her, the states she called the nurse’s station to speak to the patient’s daughter so she could try to ease her concern that her mother aspirated. It was that phone call that initiated contact with her employer to cancel her shift the night of October 3, 2015. She states she was not made aware that she was cancelled that night until after she spoke with the patient’s daughter.
Due to the events happened, the Texas Board of Nursing found the RN guilty and her license was disciplined and suspended.
She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
