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 January 21, 2008, an LVN from Austin submitted a Texas Online Renewal Document, Licensed Vocational nurse, to the Board of Nurse Examiners for the State of Texas, in which she provided false, deceptive, and/or misleading information, in that she answered “No” to the following question:
“In the past five years, have you been addicted or treated for the use of alcohol or any other drug? (You may answer ‘no’ if you have completed and/or are in compliance with TPAPN).”
The LVN failed to disclose that on December 19, 2005, she admitted herself to a rehabilitation center. Her conduct was likely to deceive the Board and could have affected the decision to issue a license.
The Texas Board of Nursing sent a letter to the LVN regarding the issue so then she can have the chance to defend herself. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Board placed her LVN license to a disciplinary action instead.
