An experienced and skilled nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead toward disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an LVN committed on July 5, 2017 through September 28, 2017, was one of those examples.
At the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for seven years.
On or about the said date, the LVN submitted falsified time cards in that she inaccurately accounted for a total of eighty-five hours of patient discharge calls. Her conduct was likely to deceive the facility.
Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN to defend herself. She states she’s never had any occurrences regarding time clock issues/claiming hours not worked at the medical facility or for the past 14.5 years as an LVN.
She states she filled out a time log to turn in every two weeks. The LVN states she would frequently have problems logging on and was told/given another username/password to work under.
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 good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
If you’ve ever done any errors or misdemeanor during your shift as an RN or LVN, and you wish to preserve your career and your license, an experienced nurse attorney is what you need.
