When it comes to disciplinary proceedings before an administrative body in the state of Texas, the first thing that you need to take into consideration is to hire the best nurse attorney. This attorney can help any RN or LVN defend herself and try to prevent the revocation of their RN/LVN license.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) months.
On or about June 12, 201 9, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN falsely documented the administration of medications in patients’ Medication Administration Records (MAR) in that medications were found in her purse. The LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and failure to administer medication as ordered by the physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
On or about June 12, 20 1 9, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN failed to take precautions to secure two (2) tabs of Divalproex 125mg, two (2) tabs of Levetiracetam 750mg, one (1) lab of Montelukast sodium 10mg, one (1) tab of Levothyroxine 50mcg, and one (1) single-dose packet of’ Fiber-Stat belonging the facility and patients in that the medications and FiberSta1 were found ill her purse. The LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients thereoföf the cost of the medications
In response, the LVN states she may have dropped medications into her briefcase, not her purse, by accident, but denies purposefully putting the medications in there. The LVN states that the briefcase was sitting open in one of the medication rooms. The LVN states she was assigned to units on opposite ends of the building and was trying to complete the medication passes, so she was moving quickly.
The LVN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
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).
