Accusations, complaints, allegations towards an RN or an LVN are reviewed and evaluated by the Board, if they need to be disciplined or not. However, if you are an LVN and violated the nursing laws, you should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could result in a different outcome and prevent your license from suspension or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a hospital in Grand Prairie, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.
On or about November 26, 2020, through May 31, 2021, while employed as an LVN at a hospital in Grand Prairie, Texas, LVN exceeded the scope of her practice when she administered TwinRix, a Hepatitis A and Hepatitis B vaccine, to a patient without a physician’s order and without documentation that the patient met standing order criteria. According to the medical record of the patient, the patient had already received the requisite doses of Hepatitis B vaccinations. LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient due to the risk of harm from the receipt of unnecessary vaccinations.
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)(C),(1)(D)&(2)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12.(1)(B)&(4).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the LVN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the LVN’s license under disciplinary action.
