If you also received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing regarding a case or complaint filed on you, you should hire a nurse attorney immediately before it’s too late. Texas nurse attorney Yong J. An is one of those dedicated nurse lawyers who helped various nurses in their cases since 2006.
This is what happened to a certain LVN in Dallas in November 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in the position for about ten months.
On or about November 12, 2017, the LVN falsified nursing notes, including vital signs, in that she left the patient’s home at 1 pm, but submitted documentation for a full twelve (12) hour shift. Respondent’s conduct was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to base their care.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN the chance to defend herself. She states she leaves her documentation at the client’s home and turns it in every Saturday after her shift. The following Friday her client had taken her nurse’s notes and she finished the last few notes on a blank piece of paper, knowing she’d be back the next day. Saturday, her patient brought her what she assumed was her Friday notes. Not looking, she filled out the remaining notes from the day prior and turned them in. She takes full accountability and knows better than to sign something without looking at it in full detail. There was never any intent and/or means to harm, lie or fraud anyone.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidence was brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges related to serious cases. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
