A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases that you may deny of committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you for discipline and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.

At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Forney, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and eleven (l l) months.

On or about November 23, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to properly assess and/or document the assessment of a Patient after the RN and a staff member observed the patient lying on the floor. The RN’s conduct could have injured the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.

In response, the RN relates that at about 0130, he and another staff member entered the patient’s room at the same time and noticed the patient on the floor at the foot of her bed. The RN states they spoke with the patient, who denied any pain and he did not feel that patient had fallen, but that she had crawled out of bed. The RN states he observed the patient’s range of motion, skin condition, and facial expressions. Due to her high risk for falls, he decided that she was safe, and he assured her she was made comfortable. The RN relates that throughout his shift, he continued to speak with the patient, administered her medication, and did not notice any signs of injury.

However, she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, causing her to face disciplinary proceedings as imposed by the Texas Board of Nursing. This could also lead to losing her RN license if not defended by a nurse attorney.

Losing your LVN or RN license can compromise your career. However, a skilled nurse attorney can greatly help you in major cases such as this. For assistance regarding your nurse license case, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An by contacting him at (832) 428-5679.
