Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them.
This LVN from Houston, Texas happens to be one of them.
On or about February 24, 2017, the RN allegedly falsified the medical record of a female patient in that she signed the patient’s name on the visit form without performing a home health visit. Subsequently, the RN went back to the patient’s home at a later time to complete the visit. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.
The RN was given the chance to defend herself. In response to the allegation, the RN states she arrived at the home of the patient on the morning of February 24, 2017, but was asked by the patient to come back later because the patient was with her therapist. The RN states several hours later, the patient called the office stating she needed her to come to her home, at which time, the RN went and completed the visit. The RN acknowledges filling out the time stamp but had no intention of not seeing the patient that day.
However, due to lack of evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was disciplined and her RN license has been subjected for a revocation.
