A nurse attorney is the one who can help any LVN who commits any violation against the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). The nursing profession is not an easy journey. Every practicing LVN holder in the state of Texas is required to follow certain rules and regulations imposed by the government. These laws and statutes were implemented to ensure that the safety of the patients is protected by the state. While the one who ensures the rights and protection of nurses is called a nurse attorney. You can surely count on them.
A LVN who commits any violation can place her LVN license in jeopardy. The Texas Board of Nursing has the authority to revoke or suspend an RN license in the country for as long as there is a justifiable reason. For this reason, LVN should seek help from an experienced nurse attorney.
On or about January 25, 2016, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a healthcare facility in Fort Worth, Texas, the LVN falsified records for a patient in that she completed the Skilled Nursing Flowsheet as if she provided nursing care to the patient until 0900; however, she departed from the patient’s home at 0600.
Her conduct resulted in inaccurate medical records and was likely to deceive subsequent caregivers who relied on the accuracy of the information while providing care to the patient.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing defend her side of the story. The LVN vehemently denies the allegations but agreed to voluntarily surrender to avoid the cost of litigation and negative publicity it would bring.
However, the Texas Board of Nursing eventually found the LVN guilty and her LVN license was disciplined.
This is what will happen for incidents when an LVN license was suspended and disciplined after a complaint was filed against her and she failed to properly present her case with a nurse attorney.
