If you also received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing regarding a case or complaint filed on you, you should hire a nurse attorney immediately before it’s too late. Texas nurse attorney Yong J. An is one of those dedicated nurse lawyers who helped various nurses in their cases since 2006.
This is what happened to a certain LVN in Dallas in 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in the position for about ten months.
On or about August 6, 2017, the LVN withdrew Demerol for patients without physicians’ orders. Her conduct was likely to injure the patients in that the administration of Demerol in excess frequency and/or dosage of the physician’s order could result in the patients suffering from adverse reactions.
Subsequently, the LVN failed to document the administration of Demerol in patients’ Medication Administration Records. The LVN’s conduct above was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patients which could result in an overdose.
Additionally, the LVN misappropriated Demerol belonging to the facility and patients thereof. Her conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN the chance to defend herself.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the pieces of evidence were brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
