Protecting Your Nurse’s License And Your Future
The BON can take your license away and prevent you from working as a nurse in Texas. I seek to prevent consequences like these. I use my thorough understanding of all health care and administrative issues as well as my superior negotiation and legal representation skills.
I can help if you are under investigation by the nursing board for any reason, including:
- Failure to provide care to a patient
- Patient care violations
- Intemperate use of drugs or alcohol
- Chemical dependency/substance abuse
- Texas Peer Assistance Program for Nurses (TPAPN) violations
- Theft of a patient’s opiates or other drugs
- Failure to disclose criminal history
- Documentation errors, including falsifying documentation
- Unprofessional conduct, including allegations of patient abuse
If you are a nurse under investigation, then the earlier you retain a lawyer, the better. The BON is an aggressive licensing board. However, with experienced counsel, negotiation and settlement are often possible. I have obtained successful outcomes for clients in these situations.
The Best Approach Is A Proactive One
The investigation process starts with the nursing board providing notice. The notice allows for a response. Many nurses simply provide a written response and assume it will go away. This is the wrong approach. Unfortunately, the BON will use that response against you if it can. At best, a written response will not help your case.
At my firm, I can represent your best interests, whether a health care licensing investigation is just beginning or the process is already underway. My goal is to prevent further escalation at each step. When I’m working with you from the onset, I will seek to prevent an inquiry from becoming a full-blown investigation. If the process has already begun, then I will strive to protect your nursing license so you can keep your job, and I will work to minimize other consequences.
