Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nursing is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as an LVN at a hospital in Carrollton, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months
On or about October 9, 201 8, while employed, the LVN misappropriated a card of Hydrocodone containing sixty-four (64) tablets belonging to the patients or facility thereof or failed to take precautions to prevent such misappropriation.

As a response to the incident, due to LVN’s misapropriate conduct towards her work and in giving care and treatment to the patients. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) decided to subject LVN’s license to disciplinary action.
