The worst thing that can happen to every LVN or RN nurse is waking up one day realizing that she has lot her nursing license for good. This is such a painful situation especially when the nurse has worked hard to become a professional nurse in the state of Texas. No matter how unfortunate this may be, there is nothing that we can do about it because any violation of the law can lead to a revocation of a LVN or RN nursing license.
In one case that was decided by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), a particular LVN nurse was ordered to turn over his nursing license. The Board issued the order after finding him guilty of the charges filed against him. After a careful study of the facts of the case, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) was able to find a sufficient ground to revoke the LVN nurse license, with finality.
The above-mentioned case involved a nurse named George. While employed as a nurse, he failed to ensure that the patient’s AC’s post-hospital prescriptions for Levaquin and Prednisone were filed prior to the patient’s follow-up visit with her primary care doctor and the veteran’s hospital. The act of the nurse unnecessarily delayed the patient’s recovery and may have contributed to the patient’s worsening respiratory condition and subsequently hospitalization for exacerbation of COPD and Pneumonia.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) ruled that the LVN nurse violated certain provisions of the Texas Administrative Code. Based on the evidence received by the Board, they ordered the suspension of the nursing license of the professional involved. During the period of suspension, she is not allowed to engage in the practice of the nursing profession.
