Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by an Allen nurse attorney. An RN from Allen, Texas is just one of the many examples.
On or about October 17, 2019, through November 11, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse in Allen, the RN allegedly submitted nursing notes for visits that were either not conducted at all, or conducted at different times than those documented as having been worked. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the RN for hours not actually worked.
In addition, the RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.
On the same day, the RN also failed to complete eighteen skilled nursing visits for patients. Her conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that failing to complete skilled nursing visits as ordered by a physician could have resulted in the patients not receiving the care they needed.
In response to the incident, the RN states the end of October and the beginning of November she began looking for new employment. She states she saw all patients as requested on the days she was available. She states she completed all paperwork as required. She states the first week of November, she was sick and had to have the last three days of the week off. She states her last official day of work for the company was November 8, 2019. She states she did not work for AQTS after that date.
The RN states she was worried when she came to discover that several of her Start of Care and Recertification notes were completed without her having to do more than enter vital signs. The RN states she was not familiar with the incarnation of KanTime, so she inquired about the notes. She states Denise Smith, LVN told her she had completed all she needed to complete and they were submitted.
The RN states she went to Lindsay Moore with her concerns and was told she needed to focus on her work, not anyone else’s. She states she was terminated on November 11, 2019. The RN states in reference to her not completing visits, she did not have possession of any documents, nor did she have access to AQTS computer systems, so she is unable to defend those accusations directly except to say she completed all notes and visits assigned to her.
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
