A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases that you may deny committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.
At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) at a hospital in Lubbock, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about January 3, 2019, through March 22, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), the LVN submitted multiple nursing visit notes for patient1 and patient 2, without a caregiver’s signature. The LVN’s conduct created incomplete medical records.
On or about February 8, 2019, through March 10, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN), the LVN inaccurately documented to who she received a report form and/or who she gave the report, on multiple nursing visits notes for the patients. The LVN’s conduct created inaccurate medical records.
In response, the LVN states that all her timesheets were approved and submitted as scheduled. The LVN adds that her timesheets would not have been approved if her visit notes were incomplete.
Therefore, as a result, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to subject the LVN and her license to disciplinary actions. The said discipline shall ensure the safety of the patient, along with a better future for the LVN’s career. However, she should have contacted a nurse attorney in order to receive assistance regarding the case, especially if the LVN sincerely thinks of it as an accusation.
