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. As a matter of fact, the RN or LVN license can even be suspended or revoked. To avoid this, it is important to look for the right nurse attorney.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN license and LVN license. The BON 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.
A perfect example of this happened to an RN in Houston. At the time of the initial incident, she was employed in a hospital in Houston, Texas, and had been in that position for eleven months.
On or about August 13, 2015, through August 20, 2015, while employed as a Registered
Nurse in the Oncology Unit in a medical facility in Houston, the RN administered one unit of packed red blood cells (PRBCs) to two patients but failed to document the administration of the PRBCs.
The RN’s conduct resulted in inaccurate treatment records and was likely to injure the patients 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. During the hearing, the RN states poor time management skills and problems concentrating prevented her from charting in a timely manner.
The RN was given the chance to defend her license but she failed due to lack of proper defense from a nurse attorney. Unfortunately, her license was disciplined.
