False documentation and inaccurate medical records are some of the typical errors or mistakes committed by nurses. These mistakes may become grounds for nursing malpractice, and if being accused, you need the right nurse attorney to help you when facing the Texas BON.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a hospital in Fort Hood, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about June 2, 2020, and June 4, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a hospital in Fort Hood, Texas, LVN falsely documented in the medication administration record (MAR) and nursing notes for the patient that she administered Zofran to the patient, thirty minutes before she administered Flagyl to the patient. LVN’s conduct was deceptive, created an inaccurate medical record, and deprived the patient of nausea relief.
In response, LVN admits there was a missed dose of Zofran and Flagyl to the patient and states she received a verbal counseling for it.
The above actions constitute 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)(A)&(6)(H).
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty of her deeds. Her LVN license was subjected to disciplinary action. She did not hire a skilled Texas BON attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
