An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the RN license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Paris, Texas had been in that position for eleven (11) months.
On or about September 12, 2018, through September 20, 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN inaccurately documented in the LVN shift report form that a veteran had not come out to the nurse’s station for morning medications and vitals. The LVN had previously scanned and documented that she had administered the morning medications.
Additionally, the LVN inaccurately documented that a veteran came out to the nurse station for morning medications, the veteran was afebrile, vital signs stable, and the veteran returned to the room. The LVN then incorrectly documented on the LVN shift report to the oncoming nurse that the patient had not come out for morning medications and vitals. The medications were scanned as administered from 0716 to 0717. The LVN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate LVN shift report and could have injured the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have reliable information on which to base their care decisions.
In response to the incident, the LVN points out that she failed to correct the shift report but the information was correctly entered in BCMA.
The LVN was given the chance of a legal counsel, in fact, all RNs and LVNs who are facing such cases are given the chance of a legal counsel, a nurse attorney at that, as your form of defense against any cases but the RN failed to contact and hire a nurse attorney for help about the case.
