It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.

On or about October 1, 2017, and October 8, 2017, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse and assigned to provide skilled nursing to a patient, the LVN failed to appropriately document start times and that medications and incontinent care were performed by the patient’s primary caregiver. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record. In addition, her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.

The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself.

During the hearing, the LVN admits to making a mistake in charting the incorrect arrival time. On May 14, 2018, she voluntarily completed a documentation course.

However, she was not able to provide a good defense attorney for herself. Therefore, the Board of Nursing placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.

Any RN or LVN should never commit errors, negligence or misconduct in work as it may affect their performance, which may lead to further issues to the patients they are taking care of.
