It’s best to seek the help of a Houston BON attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that a Houston BON attorney are always reliable for matters such as these.
An example of this happened to an LVN from Houston. During the time of the initial incident, the LVN was employed in a medical facility in Houston and had been in that position for one year.
On or about January 14, 2012, the LVN failed to document the waste of excess Morphine and Ativan that was pulled for a patient but was not administered. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate and incomplete medical record, and exposed the patient to a risk of harm in that subsequent care givers would rely on his documentation in order to provide further patient care.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. In response to the accusations, the LVN states she was counseled by the facility at the time of the incident and given a drug screen, which was negative. Additionally, she states that her work performance has improved since the incident, and she has taken measures to decrease or eliminate problems concerning narcotics wastage on her unit.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
