A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide the utmost assistance on any cases such as misappropriation of medication that you may deny committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nursing at a hospital in New Braunfels, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) months.
An incident happened on or about January 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse the LVN misappropriated Tessalon belonging to the facility and the patient thereof or failed to take precautions to prevent such misappropriation in that a card of the patient’s medication was found in her home. The LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
And on or about March 2019, the LVN misappropriated Zofran, Lasix, Zocor, and Bactrim belonging to the facility and patients thereof, or failed to take precautions to prevent such misappropriation in that the medications were found in her home. The LVN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
In regards to the incidents above, the LVN admits to the conduct that she committed and she deeply regrets her actions and understands that it was very wrong to take the medications. The LVN explains she suffers from hypertension, hyperlipidemia, and nausea on occasion, and that was the reason she took the medications.
The Texas Board of Nursing has jurisdiction over matters like these and could affect your nursing license and your career of being an RN or LVN. As a result, the LVN received disciplinary action to ensure further safety and give proper care to patients as she works in the future. She should hire a nurse attorney for instances such as this.
