Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a Texarkana nurse attorney. An LVN from Texarkana, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who have been disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing. L100425N4536
On or about August 17, 2007, through August 18, 2007, while employed in a medical facility in Texarkana, the LVN failed to appropriately and completely document in the medical record of a patient, as follows:
A shift assessment for the twelve (12) hour night shift; Suctioning the patient at around 0630 hours and discovering that the patient’s nasal trumpet was missing; and
A telephone order for an X-ray that she had obtained from the physician. Although the LVN assessed the patient and performed interventions, including notifying physicians, she failed to document anything in the patient’s medical records regarding this event.
The LVN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate information on which to base their care decisions.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
The LVN voluntarily surrendered her registered nurse license, advanced practice registered nurse license and prescriptive authorization through the agreed order.
