In the past years, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is known to have regularly filed cases against erring Texas License nurse that resulted to the revocation of the LVN license.
An LVN or RN nurse charged with the commission of a violation or omission of an act needs to be assisted by a proper legal counsel in order to present her defenses in a proper way. The assistance of a good lawyer also comes in handy in ensuring that the legal procedure is being followed.
Another Case of Dishonorable Conduct
Unfortunately, in one case filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), a Texas LVN nurse named Andrew failed to hire the right attorney to handle his case. He was employed as an Administrator and Director of a Pediatric Home Health in Dallas, Texas.
The Dallas Pediatric Home Health was not licensed by the State of Texas to conduct or provide health care to its patients. Despite his knowledge of this fact, Andrew, a Texas LVN nurse, did not report the matter to the proper administrative authority. When the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found out about this, the LVN nurse received a letter from BON about the current situation for violations of the Texas Administrative Code and the Texas Occupations Code.
During his employment at the Dallas pediatric institution, he also failed to ensure that the nursing staff were oriented, trained and had completed necessary competencies to provide safe patient care. The actions constituted disciplinary grounds in violation of the Texas Administrative Code. Moreover, he was also charged for falsely documenting medical records of a pediatric ventilator patient and pediatric Cerebral Palsy patient. These acts placed the life of his patients in danger.
While several cases were filed against Andrew before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), he failed to hire the services of a Texas nurse attorney. Because of this, he was not able to defend himself. As such, his allegedly dishonorable conducts led to the loss of his LVN license.
