The Texas Board of Nursing is known to be very strict when it comes to all actions of nurses, which is why a nurse attorney is needed when attending hearings before the Board. The Texas Board of Nursing does not allow those who wish to exceed the scope of their practice as an RN or LVN. A certain RN in Gun Barrel City could’ve done this but failed to hire a good nurse attorney.
At the time of the incident, the RN was employed in a hospital in Gun Barrel City and had been working in the facility for two years already.
On or about January 6, 2019, through January 19, 2019, while employed as an Administrator in a medical facility in Gun Barrel City, the RN submitted falsified time sheets noting she had completed two (2) after-hours visits that were not actually done. Additionally, she entered an on-call time when she was not on-call and failed to use paid time off (PTO) on days she did not work. The RN’s conduct defrauded and deceived her employer of money paid to the RN for hours not actually worked.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing decided to sentence her RN license to disciplinary action to ensure that she will never commit such acts again.
The case would have yielded a different result if the RN was able to hire a nurse attorney. So if you also have the same cases or concerns, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An for further details. You may contact him at (832) 428-5679 to get a schedule for a confidential consultation.
