When someone filed a criminal complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
In San Antonio, an LVN allegedly stole drugs, got high on the job then refilled vials with mystery liquid. She is now facing multiple felonies after he allegedly stole drug vials, injected himself while working, refilled the vials with a mystery solution and then replaced them for future use on patients.
The 29-year-old LVN was charged with tampering with a consumer product and drug diversion. According to his arrest affidavit, law enforcement officials were first notified of the alleged misconduct in February, after the LVN was caught stealing five vials of hydromorphone, a pain reliever, from a Pyxis machine, a computer-controlled drug dispenser.
The LVN later allegedly admitted to several hospital staff members that he had stolen the drugs. A Drug Enforcement Agency agent then conducted an investigation into the allegations and found video depicting the LVN stealing the drugs.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. They interviewed the LVN. During questioning, the LVN allegedly confessed to stealing the drugs, injecting them with a syringe while on the job as a registered nurse and then returning the vials to the Pyxis machine.
The LVN failed to hire a criminal nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
