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 Dumas in 2017. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Dumas and had been in the position for about ten months.
On or about March 29, 2017, the LVN erroneously documented in the Medication Administration Record that she administered Tramadol 50mg and Lyrica 150mg to a patient when this medication was not withdrawn from the blister packaging. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record and failure to administer medication as ordered by the physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that the medication errors are all mistakes and human error that she is ashamed to say she could have possibly done. She states that she remembers being told about and wrote up for medication errors. She states that she needed more training because she was lost and self-teaching. She states that she has no excuse for the errors, and thinks that the errors were caused during medication changes. As for false documentation, the LVN states that she did not do it on purpose and must have thought that she administered the medication. She states that she did not have any of these issues at her last job that she was at for two years, and that she has not had any issues at her current job.
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 drug screening results 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 any accusations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
