It is a nurse’s duty to ensure patients are getting the proper treatment they need in a timely manner. They should also follow the physician’s order and no order should be missed. A missed order could harm a patient. Some LVNs tend to miss orders and result in unnecessary harm to a patient. If this happens, an LVN should be prepared in case he or she will be summoned by the Board for such conduct. An LVN can hire a nurse attorney for this matter.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a hospital in Pasadena, Texas, and had been in that position for eleven (11) months.

On or about April 26, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a hospital in Pasadena, Texas, LVN failed to administer an IV antibiotic to a patient as ordered by a physician. Subsequently, LVN documented that she did not see the medication on the Medication Administration Record (MAR). LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the resident in that failure to administer medications as ordered by a physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.

In response to the incident, LVN states that she recognizes that she made an error in not administering the IV antibiotic as ordered by the physician. 

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10),(12)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(J)&(1)(T) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(E),(4),(6)(A),(6)(C),(6)(D),(6)(F),(6)(G) & (6)(H).

The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled Texas Nurse Attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a Texas Nursing Law Attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
