Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence while at work, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An LVN from Denton, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were found to be negligent while working.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an LVN and Assistant Director of Nursing with a health care provider in Denton, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and ten (10) months.
On or about March 25, 2019, while employed as an LVN and Assistant Director of Nursing with a health care provider in Denton, Texas, LVN failed to administer scheduled medications to 17 different patients, including, but not limited to, breathing treatments, blood pressure medications, blood thinners, psychotropic medications, insulin, and nutritional supplements. LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that failure to administer medications as ordered could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In response, LVN states that she understands the error of failing to pass scheduled medications on Monday, March 25, 2019, between the hours of noon and 5:00 pm and accepts her fault in the matter. LVN states that both the Administrator and Director of Nursing were out of the building and she had to deal with staffing issues, hand out supplies, order labs, collect specimens, admit a new patient, deal with family members, administer as-needed medications, and input height and weight information on the patients.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(M)&(1)(T) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(E).
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the LVN lost the case. Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a Tnurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the LVN’s license.
