Facing any negligence allegations may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you with the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Vocational Nurse at a hospital in McAllen, Texas, and had been in that position for nine (9) months.

On or about May 10, 2018, through May 11, 2018, the LVN failed to completely and accurately document the frequency of suctioning including method and results, maintenance of aspiration precautions, and the patient response to interventions in the medical record of the patient. The LVN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers did not have
accurate information.

In response to the above incident, the LVN states she documented vital signs, trach care, and further assessments. The LVN adds that she initially documented the patient’s respiratory status with regular respirations, rales, productive cough, moderately thick, white secretions, and the vent settings were noted. The LVN indicates her notes reflect her continued assessment and reassessment, and the Aunt expressed appreciation of the care she provided.

The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
