Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.

The incident occurred on or about November 17, 2016, when an RN from The Woodlands was found unresponsive and admitted in the hospital for a drug overdose. Subsequently, on or about November 21, 2016, she entered treatment and was diagnosed with depression and substance abuse disorder. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients* conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.

Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
