At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for six (6) years and five (5) months.
On or about January 19, 2018, while employed, the LVN failed to administer Heparin SQ to the patient as ordered prior to a surgical procedure. Additionally, when the vial was spotted in the LVN’s pocket, the LVN tried to conceal it and admitted he failed to notify the OR staff that the medication had not been given. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered by a physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In regards to the incident, the LVN states he did tell the Charge Nurse that the vial of Heparin for the patient had not been given and that it was a human error of an overwhelmed nurse who was unable to obtain help from any of the charge nurses.
However, the LVN lost the case simply because she failed to contact and hire a nurse attorney to help her defend her side. The lack of defense had the Texas Board of Nursing decide to place her LVN license under disciplinary action.
