Any type of accusations or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled and reliable nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.

Accusations regarding negligence are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an RN in Lubbock wherein several accusations are filed against about her negligence at work.

On or about May 18, 2017, May 24, 2017, and June 7, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a hospital in San Antonio, Texas, the RN withdrew five tablets of Norco 5/325mg from the medication dispensing system for patients, and although administered these medications to patients, inadvertently did not document, and completely and accurately document, the administration of the medications in the patients’ Medication Administration Records and nurses’ notes.

Aside from this, the RN inadvertently did not follow the facility’s policy and procedures for wastage of the unused portions of the medications. Her conduct left medications temporarily unaccounted for.

The LVN was given the chance to defend herself. She states she administered medications to the patients pursuant to physicians’ orders, however she acknowledges the possibility that there may have been an occasion for a documentation discrepancy.

The RN denies she misappropriated any medications because she never permanently deprived the subjects of medications. Additionally, she adamantly denies she withdrew the Hydrocodone and consumed same.

Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing believes that the RN’s conduct left medications temporarily unaccounted for.

Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action.

The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
