An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
One such incident happened to an LVN in 2015. During the time of the incident, she was currently employed as LVN in a medical facility in Conroe, Texas.
On or about November 26, 2015the LVN falsely documented a behavioral and comprehensive nursing assessment in the medical record of a patient. Her conduct was deceptive, resulted in an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the hearing, the RN states that he completed a nursing note describing the incident, and at the same time, an additional assessment was somehow generated in the computer. The RN states that he did not knowingly or intentionally falsely document an assessment in the patient’s record.
However, she was not able to provide a good and experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her side of the story.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
