Negligence at work has been a signature specialty of a Texas LVN defense attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error. When facing cases of failure to carry out physician orders, always ask a nurse attorney for help to defend your license in court.
At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an LVN with a non-profit regional health care provider in Grand Prairie, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) months.
On or about February 4, 2020, while employed as an LVN with a non-profit regional health care provider in Grand Prairie, Texas, LVN improperly labeled blood specimens for a patient, resulting in the blood sample not being tested by the lab as per physician orders. The patient required an additional blood specimen be obtained and forwarded to the lab for testing. LVN’s conduct exposed the patient to risk of harm from delay of diagnosis and treatment using lab result data.
In response, LVN states he realized something was wrong with the lab results and worked with lab staff to figure out what happened. Further, LVN states the labs were immediately redrawn and properly labeled, and the patient was treated with electrolytes on time, without any delay in treatment.
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)(B),(1)(C),(1)(D)&(1)(M) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(10)(C)&(11)(B).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN enough time to defend the complaints filed against him. However, there was a failure on the LVN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle his case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the LVN’s license under disciplinary action.
