Any type of accusations or criminal case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled Dallas nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding any cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
On or about October 17, 2017, through November 15, 2017, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a hospital in Dallas, the LVN allegedly failed to conduct multiple skilled nursing visits. Additionally, the LVN submitted nursing notes for visits that she did not conduct. Her conduct resulted in inaccurate medical records, and was likely to injure the patients from a lack of ordered nursing care.
On or about November 10, 2017, the LVN performed a catheterization on the patient in response to complaints of urinary retention, but failed to document the procedure in the patient’s medical record, including assessment of the patient’s response to the treatment, and amount of urine output. Her conduct resulted in an incomplete and inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that she saw all patients that she was scheduled to see. She adds that patients are seen by staff from many disciplines and they often forget who came by.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled Dallas nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a Dallas nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
