An LVN from McAllen is just one of the many LVNs who failed to properly represent herself before the Texas Board of Nursing. During the initial time of the incident, the RN was employed in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for two years already.
On or about July 21, 2013, while employed as a Home Health Nurse in a medical facility in McAllen, the LVN mistakenly stocked the pill box of a patient so that the patient would take Coumadin 5mg twice daily instead of once daily, as prescribed.
Two (2) days later, the patient was transported to a local emergency care center due to continued shortness of breath, left foot edema, and dry cough, at which time it was discovered through lab tests that the patient had been receiving too much Coumadin.
The patient was discharged to home in stable condition after being hospitalized for three (3) days. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from adverse complications of Coumadin overdosage, including possible uncontrollable bleeding and/or demise.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that, although it is not clear whether or not the medications were tampered with or removed or added/reloaded by another party, if the LVN made the error it is possible that she looked at the wrong medication.
However, without the valid reason and defense to properly explain the LVN’s side, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a McAllen nurse license attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
If you are summoned to appear before a licensing board regarding a disciplinary incident, you will need an experienced nurse attorney who knows how to handle nurse cases.
