False documentation is a serious case, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, there are some nurses who thought they were guilty of the charges but failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it’s  doom for their license already. However, that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.

At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and ten (10) months.

On or about October 17, 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Fort Worth, Texas, RN submitted a Respirator Fit Test Record from her personal company, in which she documented over the date the test was performed in an attempt to make it appear current. RN’s conduct created an inaccurate employee record and could have confused her facility.

In response, RN states she noticed her FIT test expired on September 19, 2020, the same day she originally completed the test two years ago. RN states that the test was redone that day by the same individual and the scene document was used with only the current date updated. RN states the test was originally completed on September 19, 2018.

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)(O) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A), (1)(B),(4),(6)(A)&(6)(H).

However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case. Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a Texas nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the RN’s license.
