It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
On or about May 7, 2018, through May 18, 2018, an LVN from Boerne failed to complete thirty-nine (39) nursing notes for home health visits. Her conduct was likely to injure patients in that subsequent caregivers did not have complete information on which to base further 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.
During the hearing, the LVN states she was not given any instruction on the computer software and there was zero communication between other staff. She thinks the situations that occurred during her time there escalated into wrongful decision making on her behalf. She apologizes for any wrongdoing and tried to complete the nursing notes online, but was not allowed access on the software website.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense attorney for herself. Therefore, the Board of Nursing placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
Any RN or LVN should never commit errors, negligence or misconduct in work as it may affect their performance, which may lead to further issues to the patients they are taking care of.
