Falsifying documents is considered a criminal offense that is punishable by a fine or even jail time. It is also considered a medical malpractice case. An RN involved in such a case could lose his/her license. Altering or tampering with medical records can be dangerous to the patients. But if an RN is accused of doing such a crime, a nurse attorney is crucially needed.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN with a health care agency in Amarillo, Texas, and had been in that position for (8) eight months.
On or about November 6, 2019, through November 11, 2019, while employed as an RN with a health care agency in Amarillo, Texas, RN falsified nursing visit notes and submitted the notes for visits that were not made. RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to base their care.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(B),(1)(C),(6)(A)&(6)(H).
A case was ultimately filed against her before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). The said allegation was fatal to the RN’s capability to perform the essential functions and duties. Sad to say, the nursing attorney who handled her case was not able to properly defend her interests and rights before the Board. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty of the offense alleged in the complaint and decided to revoke her RN license.
