Complaints regarding the failure of documenting accurate and complete medical records are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any complaints about them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance.
An LVN was employed as a licensed vocational nurse at a hospital in Houston, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately two (2) months.
On or about June 23, 2017, through June 24, 2017, when the LVN was assigned to provide nursing care for a patient, the LVN failed to accurately and completely document compliance with physician orders, including caregiver or patient teaching and failed to accurately and completely document client response to administration of medications and treatments. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further base their care.
In response to the incident above, the LVN states that on the day in question, she received word that her oldest child attempted suicide and required surgery. In the days following, she was dealing with her husband’s and other children’s unexpected health issues. She does not view these circumstances as an excuse but feels there are extenuating circumstances. Additionally, she stated she had problems getting into the system to document.
As a result of what happened, the LVN is facing disciplinary actions due to her misconduct. However, she failed to hire an experienced nurse attorney for proper assistance, causing her to undergo such procedures.
