Any type of accusations or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.

Accusations regarding negligence are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an LVN in Austin wherein several accusations are filed against her negligence at work.

According to the accusations, the incident happened on multiple dates. According to the allegations,  the LVN removed a controlled substance, Temazepam, for administration to a resident patient. The patient did not have an active order for Temazepam (discontinued August 27, 2013). There is no documented administration of the medication which the LVN removed because the medication was not listed on the medication administration record.

The facility pharmaceutical supplier dispensed Temazepam 15mg capsules for the patient.

This is where the LVN allegedly made mistake of.

However, without the valid reason and defense to properly explain her side, the LVN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.

The Texas Board of Nursing believes that the LVN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the physician to a risk of harm from complications associated with other potentially dangerous transmitted diseases and other infections.

Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action.

The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
