Allegations and complaints while at work is a serious case, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, some who thought they were guilty of the charges failed to hire the right nurse attorney just because they thought it’s the doom for their RN or LVN license already. However, that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
At the time of the incident, he was employed as an RN at a nursing home in Irving, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and nine (9) months. RN was also employed as an RN at a veterans nursing home in Irving, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and ten (10) months.
On or about December 20, 2020, through March 14, 2021, while employed as an RN at a nursing home in Irving, Texas, RN received payment for hours not worked in that RN was clocked in at the nursing home and at the veterans nursing concurrently. RN’s conduct could have defrauded both facilities of monies paid for nursing care hours provided.
In response, RN denies ever knowingly or willingly being clocked in at both facilities simultaneously without express authorization from his DONs for training purposes. The Board’s investigation began when RN’s ex-wife, who made repeated death threats against RN, made false complaints about RN misappropriating medications. Furthermore, the clock-in badges at both facilities were kept freely accessible near the time clock and it was not uncommon for employees to grab the wrong one by mistake when clocking in and out. RN agrees to this Order solely for the purpose of avoiding the time and expense of litigation.
The above action constitutes 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) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12 (6)(A), (6)(G)&(6)(H).
However, without valid evidence to defend his side of the story, the RN lost the case. Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a Texas BON attorney to help him with his case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the RN’s license.
