The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a criminal nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
A perfect example of this incident happened to an RN in Houston when she was arrested for falsification of documents.
During or around May 1996, the RN began treating three patients for injuries that resulted from an accident. In the initial report dated May 31, 1996, the RN utilized the designation “0.M.D.” which stands for Oriental Medical Doctor.
During or around June 17, 1996, the RN submitted claim forms to Material Damage Adjustment Corporation for the services she rendered to the three patients.
The RN utilized the designation “M.D.” which stands for Medical Doctor. She also referred to herself as “Dr. Jose Celpa” on the Attending Physician’s General Report form that she submitted to Material Damage Adjustment Corporation.
The RN is not licensed as a medical doctor in the state of Texas.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing. However, with the lack of evidence and expert criminal nurse attorney to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined by making deceptive, untrue, or fraudulent representations in the practice acupuncture when such scheme or trick fails to conform to the generally prevailing standards of treatment in the community.
This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Gross negligence, disobedience or any form of criminal offense on the part of an RN or LVN is never excused.
Any type of accusations can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
