An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in McAllen, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and four (4) months.
On or about February 21, 2020, through April 24, 2020, while employed and assigned to provide nursing care for two (2) patients, the LVN falsely documented and submitted nursing notes for care during times she was not with the patient. The LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record.
In response, the LVN states it was her fault for not checking the dates on the documentation that she submitted and there is no excuse. the LVN apologizes for her wrong actions and states she will not be making these mistakes again in her nursing career.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding errors committed by an RN or LVN. Thus, she was called by the Board to defend against the case.
However, the LVN was not able to properly present herself to the Board. The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
