Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about October 12, 2017, while employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Tomball, the LVN falsely documented an assessment for a patient who she did not actually see. The patient left the emergency room prior to being physically transferred to Respondent’s assigned room. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side of the story. During the defense, the LVN states she did not falsely document an assessment regarding a patient she did not actually see. She further states that in an effort to work efficiently and in an organized manner, she prepared draft documentation, to the best of her abilities given the facts known to her at the time, for follow up with the patient and the physician.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
