The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RNs and LVNs in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a Texas nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a health and hospice care provider in New Braunfels, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) months.

On or about June 20, 2020, while employed as an RN at a health and hospice care provider in New Braunfels, Texas, and assigned to provide nursing care for two (2) different patients, RN admitted she falsified nursing documentation and did not see the patients. RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to base their care.

In response, RN states she called two of her patients that she was en route to go see and they both stated they didn’t need visits that day. RN asked all the questions she would normally ask if she were in the home and made sure they didn’t need any meds or supplies ordered. They both stated everything was ok and that they would call her cell phone if anything came up. RN entered the assessments in her tablet based on the answers they had given her. RN apologizes for what she has done and assures this will never happen again. RN states she wasn’t trying to get out of work and just gave inaccurate information on her patients. Everything she charted came from the questions asked while on the phone and the answers they gave her.

Despite the RN’s response to the allegations, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found her guilty of the offense in the complaint and decided to place her RN license under disciplinary action.
