Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a Dallas nurse defense attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke or suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that the right Dallas nurse defense attorney can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations. An example of this happened to an LVN in Dallas.
At the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for six months.
On or about March 4, 2019, the LVN administered 6 Units of Novolog insulin to a student patient who was past its use-by date, for a blood sugar reading of 407, and sent the student back to class.
Additionally, the parent had not provided authorization to administer the insulin. Her conduct exposed the patient to a risk of harm from treatment with ineffective medication, and without parental approval.
In response to the incident, the LVN admits that she administered the insulin and completed a Medication Variance Report.
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 Dallas nurse defense attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a Dallas nurse defense attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
