When it comes to disciplinary proceedings before an administrative body in the state of Texas, the first thing that you need to take into consideration is to hire the best nurse attorney. This lawyer can help any RN or LVN defend herself and try to prevent the revocation of their RN/LVN license.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) at a hospital in Longview, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about January 5, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), the LVN submitted a nursing visit note for a patient without a caregiver’s signature. The LVN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record.
On or about February 18, 2019, through March I l, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), the LVN inaccurately documented who she received reports from and/or who she gave reports to, on multiple nursing visit notes for a patient. The LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) gave the LVN a chance to defend herself and in response to the incidents, the LVN states that her time sheets were approved and submitted as scheduled. The LVN further states that her time sheets would not have been approved if her notes were incomplete.
All throughout the case process, the LVN didn’t get the chance to defend herself as she failed to hire a nurse attorney. As a result, her nursing license was disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). She did not have an experienced attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision of the Board.
