Any mistakes or errors at work 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 who are undergoing a case in which the Board can revoke, suspend or only discipline RN/LVN license. Take note that a nurse attorney can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations, which may include minor or major errors at work.
At the time of the incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a Medical Facility in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) years.
On or about June 3, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN self-reported that he falsified documentation for an employee, in that he signed the employee’s name on a corrective action form. The RN’s conduct was likely to deceive the facility and relied on the corrective action form for documentation of discipline for employees.
The above scenario in which the RN falsified documents for an employee will have a negative impact on him, especially since he was the one who reported the misconduct he committed. This became a problem as the Texas Board of Nursing will subject the RN to disciplinary action.
The Texas Board of Nursing has jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the license and career of an RN or LVN. Therefore, based on the findings of the Board, the RN received disciplinary action to ensure further safety and accurate documentation as she works in the future. She should hire a nurse attorney for instances such as this.
