An experienced Houston nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a San Antonio nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.
At the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a medical facility in Austin, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.
An incident happened on or about February 3, 2021, through February 26, 2021, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN failed to complete and submit thirty-two (32) forms of medical documentation, which included twenty-one (21) incomplete nursing visit notes for so many patients. As a result, the LVN’s employer could not bill for services. The LVN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would not have complete information to base their future care decisions.
In response, the LVN states the facility created an undue burden on her by asking her to change her notes multiple times, thereby not allowing her to complete new documentation. She states that some of these visits occurred during the winter storm and says she did see all the patients but she was not allowed to start new documentation because her previous documentation kept getting kicked back by Quality Assurance agents in other countries.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a reasonable San Antonio nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
