The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN license and LVN license being defended by a nurse attorney. The BON has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nurse (BON) is an administrative proceeding wherein LVN / RN are charged for the commission of an offense or violation of certain state laws.
On or about September 3, 2014, and September 5, 2014, while employed as a Facility Administrator in a clinic in League City, the LVN failed to timely document post dialysis assessments for a patient in that she documented the post assessments approximately six to seven hours after the patient completed her dialysis treatment. Her conduct deprived the patient of detection and timely medical intervention in the event that the patient experienced a change in condition.
On or about June 17, 2015, through June 14, 2016, while employed in the same clinic in League City, the LVN obtained zolpidem from a pharmacy under her own name, through the use of fraudulent oral or telephonically communicated prescriptions, using the name of a certain Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA) agent.
This conduct done by the LVN deceived the pharmacies and was in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas ,Health and Safety Code.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the LVN admits she documented the assessments on a patient at a much later time than she actually performed it. In addition, she admits that she called in prescriptions for herself without valid physician orders and without authorization.
Due to the series of events, the Texas BON disciplined the RN and her RN license was suspended.
She failed to justify her case to the Texas BON by not hiring a nurse attorney that will properly defend her.
