It’s best to seek the help of a skillful nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
On or about October 6, 2015, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a hospital in Beaumont, the RN added falsified entries to the existing nursing notes for a patient, including that she took manual blood pressure readings and notified the physician of the patient’s status. Her conduct was deceptive, resulted in an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would not have accurate information on which to base their care decisions.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN that the next evening, she reviewed charting done by the aide and found it to be incomplete, so she added the necessary information. She states that she also added information about talking to the on call nurse, which was not added prior to the end of her shift due to time constraints and pressure to avoid incidental overtime.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
