False documentation is a serious case, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, there are some nurses who thought they were guilty of the charges failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it’s the doom for their license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.

Unfortunately, an LVN from Saginaw failed to do this. This results in disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing. Always keep in mind that the Texas Board of Nursing handles all of the cases that may affect the license from receiving the suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation. However, with a right nurse attorney for the case, rest assured that the case can go according to the nurse’s favor, especially if the RN or LVN has a good defense against the case.

On or about April 29, 2011, while employed as an office nurse, the LVN passed an unauthorized prescription for Phentermine 37.5 mg #30 with four (4) refills at the local pharmacy in Saginaw, Texas. Her conduct was likely to deceive the pharmacy and possession of Phentermine through use of an unauthorized prescription is prohibited by Chapter 481 of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Controlled Substances Act).

The Texas Board of Nursing then advised her to attend a hearing regarding her issue. During the hearing, the LVN admits to passing unauthorized prescriptions for Phentermine. She explains that she is not sure as to why she did it. She adds that she has no chemical dependency issues. She states that she has since apologized to the physician.

Therefore, the Board decided to extend her disciplinary proceedings for several more years to ensure that she will perform even better in the future.

If you’re facing cases such as this, and you think that additional disciplinary action should not be applied anymore, then be sure to hire a nurse attorney who can fully assist you.
