The assistance of a nurse attorney is needed if you’re facing a case before the Texas Board of Nursing. Your defense can be strengthened further if you’re going to face the Board, even if your case is in multiple instances of failure to follow a procedure. There are times where mistakes at work could be inevitable, which is why a nurse attorney can assure full assistance over such errors. Disciplinary actions could have been thought about by the Texas Board of Nursing if this RN from Lewisville, Texas hired a nurse attorney over her case.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN with a home care services provider Lewisville, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and four (4) months.
On or about November 5, 2019; November 10, 2019; November 26, 2019; December 24, 2019; and March 3, 2020, while employed as an RN with a home care services provider Lewisville, Texas, and assigned to provide skilled nursing for a patient, RN submitted five (5) nursing visit notes for payment that included the patient’s vital signs and Activities of Daily Living (ADLS), even though RN was not actually in the patient’s home and did not assess the patient. RN’s conduct created inaccurate medical records and was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to RN for hours not actually worked. In addition, RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation for further care.
In response to the above incident, RN denies the allegation.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4)&(6)(H).
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 Texas Nursing Law Attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a Texas Nursing Law Attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
