An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from the right nurse attorney.  Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.

One such incident happened to a RN on or about October 14, 2014. During the time of the incident she was currently employed as a staff nurse in an acute rehabilitation unit in Hearne, Texas.

On or about October 14, 2014, the RN failed to utilize appropriate infection control techniques while providing wound care for a resident patient in that she removed a dirty dressing, cleansed the wound, and placed a clean dressing on the wound, without changing gloves or washing her hands. Her conduct unnecessarily exposed the resident to risk of infection. 

On or about the same date, the RN falsely documented that she performed a weekly skin assessment for a resident patient in the resident’s treatment flowsheet. She subsequently admitted to the Texas Department of Aging and Disability Services (TDADS) surveyor that she did not perform the skin assessment for the resident. The TDADS surveyor identified three new wounds on the patient.

The RN’s conduct was deceptive, created in inaccurate medical injure the resident in that subsequent care givers did not have accurate information on which to base their decisions for further care.

The RN denies all the allegation when she was summoned by the Board of Nursing.

Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license.The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license.  It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
