The work of an LVN or RN nurse in the state of Texas is not an easy thing to do. There can be some complications that need to be addressed as soon as they arise. Otherwise, the nursing license of a particular nurse may be suspended or revoked by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). At the same time, there is also a possibility of the imposition of fines. The order depends on the finding of guilt or innocence of the RN or LVN nurse involved.
As a professional nurse, you may find yourself in a compromising situation. This is the kind of situation where you may end up losing your nursing license. As such, it is highly recommended that you get in touch with a nursing defense attorney whom you can trust. Do not wait for the proceedings to prosper without hiring a lawyer to help you. Take note that the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may issue orders that can no longer be appealed.
To illustrate this, let me bring up a particular case involving a registered nurse named Luis. He is a RN nurse employed in one of the famous hospitals in Texas. While on duty, the RN nurse failed to clarify physician’s order for a patient to wear a bi-level positive airway pressure mask or BiPAP. The RN nurse also failed to indicate the several instances where the patient experienced episodes of vomiting. Subsequently, the patient vomited in his BiPAP and experienced a decline in oxygen saturation readings to 78%. The RN nurse then failed to administer oxygen for the patient and instead, called for non-emergent transport.
The conduct of the RN nurse resulted in the delay in emergency treatment for the resident patient. This resulted to further complications in the medical condition of the patient. Because of this, he was charged before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). The RN nurse waived notice and hearing. He even waived his right to be represented by the counsel. All these waivers did not help him at all because the BON eventually ordered for the suspension of his nursing license.
