Any LVN or RN nurse who committed a malpractice, dishonorable act or violation of state laws may be subjected to a disciplinary action. The governmental agency that has the authority to deal with the acts and omissions of the nurses in Houston is the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). This agency is composed of several members who are responsible for hearing and deciding any complaint or case filed before a LVN or RN nurse.
A professional licensed nurse named Grace was involved in a case that was heard and tried by the Texas Board of Nursing. Grace graduated in a medical school in Texas. After a year, she obtained her license to practice the nursing profession in Houston. The LVN nurse has a long list of employment history. Her latest work involved being a private nurse in a medical institution until several charges were filed against her.
All the cases filed against the LVN nurse were consolidated in one case. The first one involved a finding of guilt on her person for driving under the state of intoxication. The said offense is considered as a class B misdemeanor in Texas. The second one was for the possession of dangerous drugs that is a class B misdemeanor offense in the state. The third one concerns the falsification committed by the LVN nurse while employed in a hospital. The LVN nurse submitted falsified time slips with the names of the supervisors forged. The said act enabled her to claim compensation in the amount of $5,000.
The complaints filed before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) alleged that the acts of Grace are considered as disqualifications for the practice of the nursing license. The acts constituted gross violation of the state laws as well as the code of conduct for registered nurses in Texas. The LVN nurse tried to defend herself in the complaints. However, she failed to hire the services of a reliable lawyer to assist her during the trial. As a result, she eventually lost the case and ended up having her license revoked with finality by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
