An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Bryan, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately two (2) months.
On or about October 28, 2016, while employed and assigned to provide nursing care to a patient, the LVN admitted that she falsely documented a visit note, which included vital signs, presence of edema, and patient education. Additionally, the LVN admitted she signed the patient’s initials when the patient had been admitted to the hospital on October 22, 2016. The LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further base their care.
As a response to the incident, the LVN admits she falsely documented the visit and has no excuse for her poor judgment. She states she immediately regretted her poor choice and notified her supervisor.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license to disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
