False documentation and inaccurate medical records are some of the typical errors or mistakes committed by nurses. These mistakes may become grounds for nursing malpractice, and if being accused, you need the right nurse attorney to help you when facing the Texas BON.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an LVN at a rehabilitation facility in Lewisville, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.

On or about February 19, 2020, and February 20, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a rehabilitation facility in Lewisville, Texas, LVN falsely documented daily nursing assessments for six (6) different patients. LVN’s conduct was deceptive, created inaccurate medical records, and was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate information to base their future care decisions.

On or about February 20, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a rehabilitation facility in Lewisville, Texas, LVN inappropriately pre-charted a nursing assessment for Patient A in that LVN documented the assessment at 19:44 but timed it for 20:40. LVN’s conduct was deceptive and created an inaccurate medical record.

In response, LVN asserts she assessed each patient and documented her assessment in each patient’s chart. Regarding Patient A, LVN states she was in the patient’s room for a heel-to-toe assessment at about 1944, and with the patient’s family present. LVN states her assessment was later placed in the patient’s physical chart at about 2040. 

The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D),(1)(M)&(2) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(A)&(6)(H).

Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side, but the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her in drafting a response to the boar and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to place her LVN license under disciplinary action.
