Every person who wants to become a professional LVN or RN in the state of Texas needs to go through several processes. This is the main reason why you should be careful when doing your job, or else, complaints might be filed against you. Without the help of a nurse attorney, you might get suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a health facility in Lewisville, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and four (4) months.
On or about January 9, 2018, through July 5, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse and providing care for the patient, the said LVN failed to appropriately document Private Duty Nursing Notes in the patient’s medical record every two hours, per facility policy. Instead, there were periods of three to five hours during her shifts when no documentation of any kind was provided. The patient was a seven-year-old with a history of paralysis. The action of the LVN created an inaccurate and incomplete medical record upon which other caregivers would rely to provide patient care.
It was on or about January 9, 2018, through July 5, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational and providing care for the patient, the LVN failed to appropriately document the quantity of urine obtained when she performed physician ordered Straight In & Out Catheterizations. The patient was a seven-year-old with a history of paralysis. The action of the LVN created an inaccurate and incomplete medical record upon which other caregivers would rely to provide patient care.
The Texas BON found the RN’s conduct violates a section of the Texas Occupations Code. Thus, her RN license was suspended, and placed on probation.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right nurse attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the nurse’s attorney led to the suspension of the defendant’s RN license.
