The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by Dallas RN lawyers.
On or about May 20, 2018 and May 30, 2018, an LVN from Dallas allegedly falsely documented she completed home visits for the patient and admitted she signed the patient’s name on the nursing note. Her conduct was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to further base their care and created an inaccurate medical record.
The same thing happened on or about June 11, 2018 and June 25, 2018.
On or about August 31, 2018 through September 1, 2018, the LVN admitted she signed the caregiver’s name on the nursing note because she was unable to obtain her signature. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record.
This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the LVN attended for her career’s security.
During the hearing, the LVN states she does not recall specific visit information. There was an incident where she arrived at the patient’s home, the patient was unavailable, and she was unable to contact caregiver. The LVN did complete a note. Regarding the other incident, the LVN states she has no knowledge of this visit. She is not aware of any false documentation in regards to these dates.
In response to other allegations, the LVN states she did sign the note in order to submit a note as it could only be done at the patient’s home. The family member would not answer repeated knocks on the bedroom door.
However, the LVN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined and warned of suspension of her LVN license by violating Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
