Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nursing is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about February 1, 2009, through February 14, 2009, while employed as a Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in San Antonio, the LVN falsely documented nursing visits. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate, incomplete medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation in order to provide further patient care.
Subsequently, the LVN also left her nursing assignment without notifying the appropriate personnel. Her conduct was likely to injure patients in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patients not getting the care that they needed.
The LVN was summoned before the Board to defend against the case. In response to the incidents, the LVN states: “the alleged charges are correct to my shame and regret. I got too involved with the family problems and attempted to assist this mom in her time of crisis.”
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
