The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has the jurisdiction to hear and decide cases involving the practice of professional nursing in Texas. Any RN or LVN found guilty for violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case if not properly defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about September 8, 2006, an LVN from Austin signed out Norco on the Controlled Substance Distribution and Audit Record for a patient but failed to completely and accurately document the administration of the medication in the patient’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) and Nurses Notes.
Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patient.
As a result of the conviction, the LVN was sentenced to probation and ordered to pay an amount. She was disciplined warning to a suspension of her LVN license by violating the Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
Having all these problems was never easy and should never be dealt with alone. You need someone who can help you at times like these, someone that is very reliable and knows what to do if you are facing such allegations or accusations. Any problem always has a solution.
