When the Texas Board of Nursing summoned you to appear before the court, hiring the best nurse attorney in McKinney is crucial. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an LVN from McKinney committed in August 2018 was one of those examples.
At the time of the incident, the LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a hospital in McKinney and had been in this position for one 1 month.
On or about August 20 2018 the LVN documented that she administered nursing care from 0700 to 1900 when her actual time of work was from 0345 to 1330. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to deceive subsequent caregivers who relied on the documentation while providing care to the patient.
During the hearing, the LVN apologizes for not writing the accurate time on her sheet but denies any intent to falsify any document. The LVN states that she was asked by the patient’s father to come in early that day and they had agreed that she would arrive at the patient and leave at 3 pm.
The LVN states that she recorded 0700 on her timesheet because that was when her shift normally starts and that was when the patient was ready to care for that day
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding errors committed by an RN or LVN. Thus, she was called by the Board to defend against the case.
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.
Always remember that anyone can file a complaint against an LVN with the state board for any reason. When this happens, all complaints need to be taken seriously no matter how trivial or unfounded they may appear.
