Any LVN or RN nurse who committed a malpractice, dishonorable act or violation of state laws may be subjected to a disciplinary action. It is therefore essential to hire a nurse attorney to defend your case. The governmental agency that has the authority to deal with the acts and omissions of the nurses in Houston is the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). This agency is composed of several members who are responsible for hearing and deciding any complaint or case filed before an LVN or RN.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Longview, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.
On or about May 8, 2020, May 10, 2020, and May 11, 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Longview, Texas, RN exhibited unprofessional conduct in that she entered a time edit request to alter the time in which she arrived at work. However, it was discovered that RN did not arrive for duty until much later than her time edit request. RN’s conduct was likely to deceive the facility of the hours she worked.
In response to the above incident, RN admits to the allegation. She states she is at fault for purposefully providing a time edit request that was incorrect for the days reported. She states it wasn’t right of her to do so and she agrees it was unprofessional.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(6)(A)&(6)(H).
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license to disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
Always remember that anyone can file a complaint against an RN / LVN with the state board for any reason. When this happens, all complaints need to be taken seriously no matter how trivial or unfounded they may appear.
