Nursing assessment skills are one of a nurse’ most valuable assets. This is the main reason why whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a Texas LVN license attorney.
On or about November 1, 2019, through December 4, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a university hospital in Dallas, the LVN withdrew Hydrocodone, Morphine, Zolpidem, and Fentanyl from the Medication Dispensing System for patients, but failed to document, or completely and accurately document the administration of the medications, including signs, symptoms, and responses to the medications, in the patients’ Medication Administration Records and/or nurses notes.
The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patients, which could result in an overdose. Furthermore, her conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code. The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs.
Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. However, the LVN failed to hire a Texas LVN license attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right Texas LVN license attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas LVN license attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
