Attorney For Nurses In Texas: Lubbock
We help nurses throughout Texas, including the Lubbock area, defend their nursing licenses.
Any mark against your nursing license (even a warning) becomes public knowledge and can impact your nursing career for years to come.
Complaints against nurses are fairly commonplace, with the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) receiving more than 16,000 per year. But when it happens to you – whether the allegation has merit or not – it can feel terrifying. And you shouldn’t assume that you can handle it on your own or that everything will turn out fine.
Kevin Keaney can assist you through every step of the license defense process – from allegation to final resolution. Every step of the way, he’ll fight for you and try to secure the most favorable outcome for your situation.
The most common issues that can impact nursing licenses include:
- substance abuse (alcohol or drugs)
- violation of boundaries / unprofessional conduct
- lying or falsifying documents
- failure to meet continuing education requirements
- criminal arrests or convictions (including DUI or DWI)
- violations of standards of care, as dictated by the Nurse Practice Act
- expired nursing license
- patient neglect, abandonment, or abuse
Whether you’ve just received a letter from the nursing board, are partway through the process of being investigated and disciplined by the board, or simply have questions about a situation that you were involved in, please feel free to reach out to us. We can support you, help provide peace of mind, and potentially minimize the impact on of the board’s sanctions.
Kevin Keaney can understand and empathize with what you’re going through! He earned his BSN from the University of Texas at Austin and practiced as a nurse for four years before becoming an attorney. He now has more than 30 years experience as an attorney and is a member of The American Association of Nurse Attorneys (TAANA).
