Being an RN in Texas is not an easy thing to do. There are so many things that you need to take into consideration if you want to continue using your nursing license. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) can suspend your RN license whenever you are found liable of any violation. As a matter of fact, the Board can even order for the revocation of your license with finality. When this happens, you are no longer allowed to continue being an LVN or RN nurse in the state of Texas.
Do not worry because the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) always conducts a hearing of all the cases before imposing any punishment or fine to the erring nurse. During the proceedings before the Board, the RN or LVN nurse is given an opportunity to be heard by defending himself. The assistance of a nursing defense attorney is not mandatory. This right can be waived by the RN or LVN nurse whenever he wants to. However, this is not highly recommended because failure to get proper representation by an expert counsel can lead to adverse effects.
The important case in point here is one that involved a RN named Karl. In one case filed against him before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), it was alleged that on or about November 26, 2013, through December 20, 2013, the RN nurse made fraudulent entries into the medical records of a patient. He was able to accomplish the fraudulent machinations by forging the patient’s signature.
In another complaint, it was also stated that on or about the same time period,, the RN nurse submitted fraudulent and falsified time, payroll, and mileage record misappropriating more than $13,662.78. Because of this act, he was able to steal a lot of money from the hospital administration. During the hearing of the case, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) discovered that the allegations against him were true. For this reason, the BON ordered for the revocation of his license.
