False accusations are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an LVN in San Antonio failed to do so.

In a medical facility in Houston, a woman underwent delicate eye surgery on her right eye. The surgery, a vitrectomy, involves removing tissue behind the eye lens. After the surgery was complete, a gauze bandage is placed to cover the eye and held in place with tape.

However, instead of having a pre-cut piece of tape, the LVN stretched the tape over the gauze and pressed her thumb into the patient’s eye to exert pressure to cut the tape. The surgeon stopped the LVN, but the pressure caused hemorrhaging and a retinal detachment that left the patient mostly blind in that eye; she lost partial vision in her left eye.

Because of this, the woman sued the LVN as well as the hospital for medical malpractice. As a defense to her case, the LVN denied everything including the negligence.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the LVN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

Negligence may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

Because the LVN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
