The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse in the role of Clinical Supervisor at a hospital facility in San Antonio and had been in that position for one (1) year and ten (10) months.
On or about August 29, 2017, through February 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in the role of Clinical Supervisor, the RN altered multiple narrative nursing notes of another nurse for visits she was not present for. The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record.
In response, the RN denies the allegations and states she consistently maintained accurate documentation within the standard of care in her role as a clinical supervisor.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, knowing that she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.
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).
So if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J.
