Any type of accusations can be defended as long as there is a skilled Texas nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, he was employed as an LVN at a nursing home in Irving, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.
On or about July 10, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a nursing home in Irving, Texas, LVN administered the oral antipsychotic medication, Haldol, to the patient with no physician order for the medication. LVN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the resident to risk of harm from administration of an antipsychotic medication without physician’s orders.
Another incident happened on or about July 24, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a nursing home in Irving, Texas and working in the Veterans Unit, LVN failed to completely and appropriately document an incident in which he was punched by a resident. LVN failed to perform and/or document interventions for the resident’s aggressive behavior, notify the physician, or document an incident report. LVN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the resident in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In response, LVN states that he has never administered prescription medication to a resident in his care. Furthermore, LVN states that he reported the incident in a timely manner and notified the physician. LVN adds that he also made himself available for any subsequent follow up questioning.
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),(1)(M)&(2)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12.(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C)&(4).
However, without enough evidence to prove he’s not guilty, the LVN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed his LVN license under disciplinary action.
