Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a Mission nurse attorney. An LVN from Mission, Texas is just one of the many examples.
At the time of the incident, the LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Mission, Texas, and had been in that position for one year.
On or about June 27, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in Mission, the LVN misappropriated two blister packs of Furosemide 20mg, one blister pack of Furosemide 40mg, and two blister packs of Lisinopril 20mg, from several patients and gave the medications to a nurse’s aide, who was not a registered patient, for her personal use. Her conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients, thereof, of the cost of the medications.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
In response to the incident, the LVN states she did take medications and give them to a Certified Nursing Assistant at the facility who had medical issues and could not afford the medications. She explains she got the medications out of the discontinued medications bin and that the medications were non-narcotic and were being sent for destruction. She relates she had no intention of defrauding the patients or the company.
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the LVN lost the case.
Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a Mission nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
