The work that nurses do is often unappreciated. And sometimes, a bit of negligence could lead to a more serious scenario such as filing a suit against them. If this happens to an LVN, they should know how to protect and defend themselves. If not properly defended by a nurse attorney, their license could even be suspended or revoked. L191033N7292
On or about December 31, 2017, and January 1, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in San Antonio and assigned to provide private duty nursing to a patient, the LVN submitted fraudulent nursing notes indicating she cared for the patient when in fact the patient was provided nursing care by a Clinical Coordinator.
The LVN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record that was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on his documentation for further care. In addition, her conduct was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid for hours not actually worked.
Because of the incident, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing. In response to the incident, the LVN states she worked both shifts.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good criminal nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
