Whenever someone filed a complaint against you which involves false documentation, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Grand Prairie, Texas is just one of the many examples.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospice care provider in Grand Prairie, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) months.
On or about September 8, 2016, and September 15, 2016, while employed as an RN at a hospice care provider in Grand Prairie, Texas, RN documented nursing notes for visits with the patient, which were never conducted. RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation for further care.
In response, RN denies intentionally or knowingly entering notes for a visit not completed. RN states she completed notes from printed sheets that she had in her file.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12 (1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(A),(6)(H)&(10)(B).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
