If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit mistakes such as malpractice.
On or about September 2, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Conroe, the LVN allegedly failed to follow the physician’s plan of care for the patient in that she failed to administer tube feedings, treatments, and medications as ordered. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to follow the physician’s plan of care could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
During the hearing, the LVN states she made an error in documenting the time medications were administered in the morning, stating it was unintentional. She states she did not give the 100 mL flushes after medications as he should have, claiming it was an oversight on her part. She states at 1300, the urinary catheter was completed although she forgot to document.
The LVN further states at 1645 and 1700, the documentation was a copy from previous notes she failed to delete. She states this was all unintentional and she is in no way in the habit of documenting things that she has not done.
However, the LVN failed to properly assess a patient’s condition, which directly results in further harm or injury, that the LVN should be tried for medical malpractice.
The LVN’s could cause great danger and injure the patient in that failure to assess the patient, properly monitor and administer medications as ordered by the doctor could have resulted in the non-efficacious treatment of the patient’s condition.
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.
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.
