Negligence, false documentation, and misconduct have been a signature specialty of a nurse attorney when handling cases for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error.
On or about August 14, 1999, the LVN received a physician’s order for a patient. Subsequently, the LVN documented that she recorded the order on August 14, 1999.
However, the LVN did not record the order on August 14, 1999, nor did she subsequently document that the recording was a late entry.
The LVN’s documentation was inaccurate and false. Her conduct constitutes conduct that falls below the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing nursing practice.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the RN attended for her career’s security.
However, the RN failed to hire an effective criminal nurse attorney to help her defend her side. As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, especially if she has a good defense to the accusations. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas criminal nurse attorney as well.
So if you’re facing a complaint, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is willing to assist every nurse in need of immediate help for nurse licensing cases. To contact him, please dial (832)-428-5679 for a confidential consultation or for more inquiries.
