Medical board defense lawyer TX – the disciplinary process
The disciplinary process for nurses in Texas may begin with a letter of self-report or may be initiated at the request of a patient, supervisor or coworker. Alternatively, an employer may request an investigation into nurse misconduct based upon other circumstances, such as obvious impairment or criminal charges.
The allegations may be unsubstantiated or your conduct may be completely in line with expected professional standards. However, a professional nurse license (whether you are a Registered Nurse or a Licensed Vocational Nurse) is simply too important to leave to chance. If you are concerned about potential disciplinary action, contact us today. Our attorneys have extensive experience handling medical licensing defense.
We provide effective nurse license defense in a wide range of circumstances. Among other things, Texas nurses may be subject to sanctions for:
- Lack of professionalism: Patients may complain that a nurse lacks professionalism or has an inappropriate bedside manner. With multiple complaints or serious cases, nurses may be subject to punishment.
- Performing experimental treatments: Medicine is both an art and a science, with many treatments yet to be discovered or fully understood. When nurses push the boundaries of acceptable standard medical treatment, they may be called before a peer-review board to defend their actions.
- Failure to document procedures: When patient records are not properly maintained or procedures are not properly documented, nurses may be subject to sanctions.
- Narcotics addiction: The Texas Nursing Practice Act has a safe-harbor provision to protect nurses who have become addicted to prescription drugs. This provision encourages treatment rather than punishment. We can effectively advise you and provide skilled representation throughout the process.
