When the Texas Board of Nursing summoned you to appear before the court, hiring the best nurse attorney in McKinney is crucial. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an LVN from McKinney committed in 2019 was one of those examples.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a healthcare facility in McKinney, Texas, and had been in that position for ten (10) years and six (6) months.
On or about February 6, 2019, and July 8, 2019, while employed as an LVN at a healthcare facility in McKinney, Texas, LVN submitted a fraudulent and unauthorized telephonically communicated prescription for Tamiflu and Desoximetasone to a Pharmacy for a family member using the name of a Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine. LVN’s conduct was likely to deceive the pharmacy and possession of Tamiflu and Desoximetasone through the use of an unauthorized, and fraudulent telephonically communicated prescription is prohibited by Chapter 483 of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Dangerous Drugs Act).
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10), Texas Occupations Code, and are a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(10)(E).
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the LVN lost the case. Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a Texas nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the LVN’s license.
Do not be stressed or anxious if you find yourself in a similar situation as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case.
