Every practicing LVN license holder in the state of Texas is required to follow certain rules and regulations imposed by the government. These laws and statutes were implemented to ensure that the safety of the patients is protected by the state. An LVN who commits any violation can place her LVN License in jeopardy. The Texas Board of Nursing has the authority to revoke or suspend an LVN license in the country for as long as there is a justifiable reason. Failure to hire a Texas BON attorney could lead to LVN license suspension.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a skilled nursing facility in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that position for one (l) month.

On or about August 27, 2018, while employed as an LVN at a skilled nursing facility in Mesquite, Texas, LVN failed to call 911 in a timely manner causing a thirty-nine (39) minute delay in care for a patient who was found unresponsive and with two (2) respirations per minute. Upon the arrival of the EMS providers, all rescue measures were ceased, and the patient was pronounced deceased due to obvious signs of death which included cold skin, dependent lividity, rigor mortis, and pooling of blood on the bottoms of the patient’s arms and legs. LVN’s conduct delayed the onset of the patient’s emergency medical care which was necessary for preventing further complications and may have contributed to the patient’s demise.

In response, LVN states that she found the patient unresponsive without vital signs or any respirations. CPR was initiated but unsuccessful.

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D),(1)(M)&(2)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(4).

Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty of her deeds. Her LVN license was subjected to disciplinary action. She did not hire a skilled Texas BON attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
