The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging. There is a need to follow several rules and regulations in order to prevent revocation of the nurse licenses. In the past, Texas Board of Nursing (BON) filed several cases against different nurses for misconduct and gross negligence.

 

Meet This LVN Nurse Named Kimberly

 

Kimberly, a Texas LVN nurse, was one of those professionals who were charged before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). She graduated from a university in San Antonio. She obtained a LVN license to engage in vocational nursing. Four years after, she got her LVN license that enabled her to practice professional nursing.

The possession of the said license allowed her to land the work that she has been dreaming of since she was a child. However, just when she thought that things were starting to be great, something happened.

She created a false Patient Medical Record and submitted it to the home health care center. In the said document, she stated that she conducted a home health visit for a particular patient when in fact it did happen. The conduct of Kimberly resulted in the creation of an inaccurate medical record.

The Home Health Care Center notified the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) about it when the wrongful act was discovered. As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) filed a case against her. The compliant from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) stated that the falsified document was more likely to deceive subsequent caregivers in providing care to the patient involved.

Aside from the above-mentioned misconduct, Kimberly was also arrested by a Highway Patrol while she was driving in San Antonio. She was apprehended for DWI. An aggravating circumstance was presented in the commission of the DWI since during that time; she was with a minor who was below fifteen years of age. Such act constituted a State Jail felony that could land her in prison for 2 years
