If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit misconducts.

One such incident happened to an RN on or about April 7, 2008, while employed as a Register Nurse in a medical facility in Houston. During the said date, the RN allegedly was observed by another nurse withdrawing 16,800 unit vials of Epogen, and not the ordered 16,200 unit vials for a patient. The dose should have consisted of 1-10,000u vial, 1-3000u vial, and 1-2000u vial. The RN prepared 1-10,000u vial and 2-3000u vials, using overfill from 10,000u vial and 2-3000u vial without overfill, which made the dose 16,800u. The other nurse intervened and did not allow the RN to administer the incorrect dose of Epogen, as withdrawn. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient from non-efficacious treatment or adverse reactions from an excessive dose of Epogen

In response to the incidents, RN states: On April 7, 2008, our facility was being audited by the state. My technique of drawing up medications was being observed and I was nervous and made a medication error. My administrator took disciplinary action and has continued to monitor me and will do so for a minimum of eight weeks, post-incident. She will monitor me weekly after that time frame. The second allegation of having alcohol on my breath, I have never consumed alcohol in the workplace. I do have a few glasses of wine at home in the evenings. I would appreciate you considering me for the TPAPN program so this will not be a problem in the future.

An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney.  Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license.  It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.

The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.

A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
