An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an LVN committed was one of those examples.

At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) at a hospital in Waco, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and six (6) months.

On or about June l, 2016, through January 30, 2019, while employed the LVN violated the professional boundaries of the nurse/client relationship in that the LVN spent time with the patient and his family when she was not scheduled or assigned to care for the patient, invited the patient and his family to her home, and went on vacations with the patient and his family. Additionally, the LVN picked up medications from the pharmacy for the patient. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that it could have resulted in confusion between the needs of the nurse and those of the patient, and may have caused delayed distress for the patient and the patient’s family, which may not be recognized until harmful consequences occur.

In response, the LVN admits that the patient and his family have been to her home on numerous occasions.

The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
