When it comes to disciplinary proceedings before an administrative body in the state of Texas, the first thing that you need to take into consideration is to hire the best nurse attorney. This attorney can help any RN or LVN nurse defend himself and try to prevent the revocation of the nursing license.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a children’s hospital in Houston, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and three (3) months.
On or about July 2018, through December 2019, while employed as an LVN at a children’s hospital in Houston, Texas, LVN obtained Amphetamine / Dextroamphetamine from four (4) different pharmacies for herself, her husband, and her daughter through the use of falsified and unauthorized prescriptions, using the name and Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) number assigned to a licensed medical doctor after misappropriating the prescription pad from the said doctor. LVN’s conduct was likely to deceive the pharmacy, and possession of Amphetamine/Dextroamphetamine through the use of fraudulent prescriptions is prohibited by Chapter 481 of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Controlled Substances Act).
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10), Texas Occupations Code, and are a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(6)(G),(10)(E)&(11)(B).
However, the LVN in the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) disciplinary proceeding failed to rebut the allegations. The Board decided to revoke her LVN license. It was the consequence she needed to face for failure to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney to defend his case. Your fate should not be the same with this LVN.
