The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.

One of the examples where a client failed to hire the right nurse attorney will be discussed in this case.

This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the LVN attended for her career’s security.

On or about February 27, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Beaumont, the RN falsely documented at 10 PM that another nurse completed the focused assessment and triage of a patient earlier that morning when she was assigned to triage the patient. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate, incomplete medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation in order to provide further patient care.

During the hearing, the RN admits she documented, around 10 pm the day of the incident, that her coworker did the triage for the patient in this incident; she admits that this was wrong and takes responsibility.

The RN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined warning to a suspension of her LVN license by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.

Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
