Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence while at work, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An LVN from Georgetown, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who was found to be negligent while working.
On or about October 2, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a hospital in Georgetown, Texas, LVN incorrectly administered the wrong dose of a testosterone injection to a patient in that LVN administered and documented the administration of 200 mg of testosterone, instead of 300 mg of testosterone, as ordered. LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the failure to administer medications as ordered could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
Another incident happened on or about October 19, 2020, through March 29, 2021, while employed as an LVN at a hospital in Georgetown, Texas, LVN failed to accurately document the correct dose of the testosterone injections she administered to another patient in the patient’s medical record. LVN documented the administration of 200 mg of testosterone in her nursing notes in the patient’s medical record, instead of the 250 mg of testosterone that was actually administered and documented on the testosterone log. LVN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would not have accurate information on which to base their decisions for further care.
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)(C),(1)(D)&(2)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12.(1)(B)&(4).
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.
