Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for the case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them.

On or about March 7, 2017, while employed as Registered Nurse in the specialty care unit of a medical facility in Houston, the RN allegedly verbally abused a patient in that she used inappropriate and offensive language while communicating with the mother of the patient. When questioned, she states she stopped and clarified what she thought she heard the patient’s mother say.

On or about July 11, 2017, the RN again allegedly verbally abused a patient in that she was observed screaming at the patient. Her 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. When asked about it, denies she verbally abused the patient. She states the patient was agitated due to multiple attempts to draw blood and she was trying to calm the patient down and coaching him to stay still.

The Texas Board of Nursing thus finds that there exists serious risk to public health and safety as a result of impaired nursing care due to the intemperate use of controlled substances. And even though the RN had the chance to explain her side to the Texas Board of Nursing, her lack of an effective nurse attorney to help her resulted in her disciplinary actions.

The case could have resulted in a lesser disciplinary action by the Board of Nursing, only if the RN hired an effective nurse attorney to help her win her case.

Misconduct issues could 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.
