The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. An LVN in Texas needs to follow several rules and regulations in order to prevent revocation of her license. In the past, several cases were filed against different nurses for misconduct and gross negligence which may have put their license in danger. In this times, seeking help and assistance from a nurse attorney is a must.
On or about July 15, 2012, and January 6, 2013, while employed in a medical facility in Dallas, the LVN failed to complete shift assessments and nurse notes for several patients. Her conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers did not have accurate information on which to base their decisions for further care.
Additionally, the patient and the patient’s family requested that she not provide care again due to her “odd” behavior. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN to explain and defend her side. However, the RN eventually lost the case against her. The events led to the finding of the Texas Board of Nursing guilty on the LVN’s part. Thus, her RN license was disciplined and suspended.
Avoid the same thing from happening in your case. Make sure to take the necessary steps in dealing with a complaint filed before the Board against you or else, your license may be put in danger.
