A licensed nurse charged with any violation or omission of action needs to be assisted by proper legal counsel in order to present her defenses in a proper way. The assistance of a good nurse attorney also comes in handy in ensuring that the legal procedure is being followed. That is why it is best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Frisco, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and six (6) months.
On or about February 7, 2019, through February 20, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN falsely documented and signed comprehensive assessments for home health recertification, that were performed by a Licensed Vocational Nurse instead of the RN. The RN’s conduct was deceptive and created fraudulent medical records.
In response to the incident, the RN states she was not always able to complete documentation on the same day as she provided the visits because of her workload. In addition, the RN states she was the only Registered Nurse making visits for Start of Care, Recertification, and Resumption of care on sixty (60) to eighty (80) patients.
As a consequence, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) subjected the RN to disciplinary action. The RN should have been assisted by an experienced nurse attorney and would have avoided such circumstances.
Avoid a similar thing from happening on your end. Make sure to find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). Consult with Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J. An, today if you have any questions about your disciplinary process by calling or texting him at (832) 428-5679 day, night, or on weekends.
