Accusations at work are one of the cases that a Brownsville nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an LVN failed to do so.
On or about May 12, 2018, through June 12, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in Brownsville, Texas, the LVN falsely documented nursing notes for hours that were not worked and falsified a patient’s parent’s signature on the nursing notes.
Further, the LVN admitted to the Scheduler that she typically left the patient’s home at 5:00 p.m. or 5:30 p.m, which did not match the check-out times documented on nursing notes.
This conduct by the LVN created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud and deceive the patient or the public of money paid to her for hours not actually worked.
In response to the incident, the LVN states the patient’s mother gave her permission to sign her signature. She states she documented the same check out time, even on the days she left early because the patient’s mother told her to. She states the mother didn’t want the patient to lose nursing hours, the LVN further states she did what she was told even though it was wrong.
The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
Because the LVN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Brownsville Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
