Any type of accusation or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Victoria, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) months.
On or about August 10, 201 8, and August 17, 201 8, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to document two (2) home nurse visits for a patient. Specifically, the RN completed the scheduled home visits, but did not submit completed documentation to her employer. The RN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record.
In response to the incident, the RN states that she received no orientation to the computer or the agency. The RN states that she documented notes for the two visits and was never notified that the notes in question were missing.
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing believed that there is not enough evidence to support the RN’s defense.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license to 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.
