Facing any allegations may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you with the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as the Assistant Director of Nursing, and Unit Manager, at a hospital in Lewisville, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.

On or about June 20, 2016, the LVN erroneously documented that she administered medications to a patient, on June 18, 2016, and June 19, 2016, when she was not present in the facility. The LVN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers did not have accurate information on which to base their decisions for further care.

And because of the incident that happened, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear and defend her side against the accusation and allegations thrown at her or filed against her. The LVN reports that she did not falsely make this medication documentations.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the LVN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed against her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN and her license to disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the RN. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
