Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse defense lawyer in Texas. An LVN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who have been disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing.
According to the record, the LVN was hired on 5/7/18 and her employment was terminated on 5/31/18. It was reported that on 5/26/18, she was scheduled to work 7p-7a on the adult psych unit. She was given a report on patients and her assignment was to administer medications, carry out orders and assist the RN. She received a phone call in the middle of counting narcotics and informed the other LPN that she would be right back.
The LVN allegedly never returned to her shift and she failed to respond or answer multiple phone calls and text messages. She failed to show up for her scheduled shift on 5/27/18 and failed to contact the nursing supervisor. On 5/28/18, the LVN called stating that her boyfriend kicked in her door and that is why she had to leave. This was not her first time disappearing from the facility without communicating to her Charge Nurse or Supervisor. She was unable to provide documentation to support that the police had been called to her apartment.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse defense lawyer in Texas, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
