Attorney For Nurses In Texas: El Paso
In their jobs, all nurses make mistakes. And sometimes those can rise to the level that someone files a complaint with the board of nursing. If this has happened to you – even if the incident seems minor – it can lead to major repercussions.
On average, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) receives more than 16,000 complaints about nurses each year. Some do not contain enough information, or the allegation is not under the board’s purview, but the rest are investigated.
Depending on what is uncovered in the investigation, the nursing board could discipline you with a warning, reprimand, probation, suspension, revocation of the license, or some other type of disciplinary sanction.
