Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a Texas BON attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nursing is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke, suspend, or only discipline their license. Take note that a nurse attorney can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an LVN with a home care health services provider in Carrollton, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year.
On or about February 1, 2018, through May 2, 2019, while employed as an LVN with a home care health services provider in Carrollton, Texas, LVN failed to schedule dental appointments for a client and/or failure to follow up with the client’s mother to clarify if and when any scheduled dental appointments had occurred. LVN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the patient to a risk of harm from untreated dental conditions.
In response to the incident, LVN states that the client was added to her caseload in February of 2018. LVN states that the client’s mother scheduled his appointments and organized his care and would communicate with the Executive Director.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(13), Texas Occupations Code, and a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(P)&(1)(Q).
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty of her deeds. Her LVN license was subjected to disciplinary action. She did not hire a skilled Texas BON attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
