An LVN had been working as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in San Benito, Texas, for four (4) months at the time of the first incident.

On June 2, 2019, and June 4, 2019, the LVN erroneously stated in the patient’s medication administration record (MAR) and nursing notes that she administered an antiemetic medicine thirty minutes prior to administering an antibiotic. This deceitful action resulted in an incorrect medical record, denying the patient relief from nausea.

In response, the LVN acknowledges that the patient missed taking both medications and says she was verbally reprimanded about it.

But if the RN truly believed it to be an accusation, she may have hired and gotten in touch with a nurse’s attorney to get support or aid with the case she was in.

False documentation can be considered a serious misdemeanor, especially in clinical facilities. Administering the right medication on time and with the prescribed doses is essential for our patient’s recovery, therefore we have to carefully and diligently make sure it’s done as honestly and accurately as possible.
