An LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in El Paso, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) months.
An incident happened on or about October 26, 2018, an LVN was involved and while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN failed to take precautions to secure the medication lockbox containing Lorazepam, Epinephrine, Narcan, and Benadryl. The LVN handed the locked medication box to non-medical personnel during an emergency and it was later found in the possession of a client. The LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients thereof of the cost of the medications.
Because of the incident, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side. During the hearing, the LVN states she has difficulty walking due to issues with her knees and while sitting at her desk charting, the LVN states there was a code blue called for her colleague’s client outside of their building.
However, despite her explanation, the Board of Nursing still subjected the LVN to disciplinary actions. The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
