Whenever someone filed a complaint or accused you of something or allegations against you that involve negligence at work, your nursing license could be put in danger if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were found to be negligent while on duty.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and five (5) months.
On or about November 6, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN slapped a patient across the face and threatened to sue the patient. The RN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered with or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response, the RN states the patient was trying to bite her and other staff while she was attempting to administer medication. According to the RN, the patient subsequently spits in her face and, through reflex action, not one done deliberately or to cause harm, the RN touched the patient’s face with her three (3) fingers and the palm of her hand.
Furthermore, the RN has failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you ever 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. Contact the Law Office of Nurse Attorney Yong J.
