A nurse’s misconduct is 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 by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in Rosenberg failed to do so.

An RN was employed as a Registered Nurse and while employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Pharr, Texas, the RN failed to initiate Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) when she found the patient unresponsive, pulseless, and breathless. Instead, the RN went to the nurse’s station and informed the Charge Nurse who then initiated the Code Blue and CPR. In addition, the RN did not participate in the resuscitation efforts and was unable to provide critical patient information while resuscitation efforts were in progress. The RN’s conduct delayed the resuscitation of the patient and may have contributed to her demise two (2) days.

In the above incident, the RN’s actions or misconduct constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any form of misconduct. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined.

This is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired. Especially if the RN has a good defense, the trial could favor her part had she only hired a good nurse attorney to help her defend her case. Because of the lack of an experienced and good nurse attorney, the RN was disciplined and further sanctions may apply.

The Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN 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.
