A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases that you may deny committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.

Notwithstanding these laws, there are still a high number of LVNs/RNs who keep on violating the statutes and special laws enacted by the government. This is the primary reason why there are many complaints filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). One of the nurses got involved in a particular case.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a medical facility in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and two (2) months.

On or about January 6, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a medical facility in Mesquite, Texas, LVN submitted a fraudulent Skilled Nursing Flowsheet for skilled nursing care she did not perform for a patient, in that LVN documented performing home care and falsified the signature of a patient who was hospitalized at the time of the documented visit. LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud the facility of money paid to the LVN for hours not actually worked. Additionally, LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.

In response to the above incident, LVN states the Flowsheet for the patient was not submitted as a completed visit. LVN states the only information on the Flowsheet were timestamps and the patient’s signature, which is inconsistent with an actual visit. LVN cannot explain how this Flow Sheet was updated to contain the patient’s signature.

The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(A),(6)(H)&(10)(B).

Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side but the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to place her LVN license under disciplinary action.
