Nurses facing cases they never committed should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any criminal charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the LVN from Houston should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
The incident occurred on or about December 11, 2012 to an LVN in Houston. According to the accusations, on or about the mentioned date the LVN failed to document a complete initial assessment on a patient. The LVN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation to provide further care.
Subsequently, on or about the said date, the LVN failed to ensure a required informed signed consent was obtained from a patient prior to the administration of t-PA (Alteplase). Her conduct deprived the patient of information necessary to make an informed decision about receiving a high risk treatment, thereby placing her at risk of harm.
The LVN was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. However, despite her explanation, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
