While she was employed in a healthcare institution and assigned to a particular patient, she submitted a falsified nursing flow sheets. In the said document, the RN or LVN indicated that she worked forty hours a week when she did not work the documented hours.
The conduct of the RN nurse involved resulted in the creation of inaccurate medical records. It was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the RN or LVN nurse for hours not actually worked. Moreover, it was also stated that the misconduct could lead to injury of future patients who would rely on her false documentation for further care.
