There are many laws in the state of Texas that every citizen or even aliens are supposed to follow. These legislations were enacted to ensure that there will be peace and order in the state as well as to protect the rights of the people to life, liberty and property. One of these laws is the Texas Occupations Code that governs the practices of every LVN or RN nurse in Dallas, Texas.
Any violation of the Code committed by a professional licensed nurse may result to the revocation of the nursing license. This is what happened to Alice who was subjected to a disciplinary proceeding before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
Alice was employed in a health care facility in the State of Texas. Part of her job as a licensed nurse was to conduct examination of the patients and submit the necessary reports. While employed in the hospital, she failed to submit nursing notes for home health visits involving a particular patient. Because of this incident, an inaccurate medical record was created that was likely to injure the patient.
The act of the LVN/RN nurse was a clear violation of the Texas Occupation Code. As such, a complaint was filed against her before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). The licensed nurse tried to argue that there was no intent to cause such harm. She even tried to raise the defense of simple negligence.
Notwithstanding the above arguments, Alice still ended up with her nursing license being revoked by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). One of the factors that led to that kind of situation was her inability to find the right defense lawyer to handle her case before the Board.
