License Complaint Against CNA Closed with Finding of No Probable Cause
Posted on Firm News February 1, 2014 by author
After consideration of the rebuttal statement prepared by the Firm, the Probable Cause Panel for the Board of Nursing determined that probable cause did not exist and directed the case against a Certified Nurse Assistant represented by the Firm be closed by the Florida Department of Health. The Firm fully investigated the allegations contained in the preliminary complaint against the CNA, specifically that the CNA improperly restrained a resident of a skilled nursing facility. Attorney Erin Bengele identified several inconsistencies in the witness statements and highlighted evidence which confirmed that the client had not acted improperly in the care of the resident and had not violated the Nurse Practice Act.
