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 RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Killeen, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.
On or about June 26, 2020, and July 3, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to make scheduled visits to the patient as ordered. Additionally, the RN submitted falsified nursing visit documentation for those visits she did not actually make. Subsequently, the RN admitted to her employer that she had not seen the patient in over a month. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and could have caused changes in the patient’s condition to go undetected and untreated.
In response, the RN states that the visits were completed as tele-visits. However, even after the given statements of the RN, she was disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. But then the following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
