Whenever someone filed a complaint against you which involves false documentation, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An LVN from The Woodlands, Texas is just one of the many examples.
At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an LVN with a home healthcare services provider in The Woodlands, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately eight (8) months.
On or about October 26, 2020, while employed as an LVN with a home healthcare services provider in The Woodlands, Texas, LVN falsely documented that he completed home health visits for two (2) different patients, who was in the hospital at the time. LVN’s conduct was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to base their care and created an inaccurate medical record.
In response, LVN does not dispute the charge labeled against him, however, he does wish to convey that he did go back to see the patient to complete their visit. LVN states he also performed the required wound care per physician orders. According to LVN, he was unaware that the other patient was admitted to the hospital. LVN adds that no harm befell either patient to his knowledge and he does understand he made a mistake.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(B), (1)(C),(6)(A)&(6)(H).
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found him guilty of his deeds. His LVN license was subjected to disciplinary action. He did not hire a skilled Texas BON attorney to fully defend his case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
