When the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has a complaint against you, you should seek a nurse attorney. Any RN or LVN found guilty of violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case such as revocation or suspension of her RN or LVN license. The trend is for employers to refer a case to the Texas BON to discipline a nurse and at the same time terminate your employment in most of the cases.
On or about June 2, 2020, and June 4, 2020, while employed as an LVN with a pediatric home healthcare provider in Tyler, Texas, LVN falsely documented in the medication administration record (MAR) and nursing notes for a patient that she administered Zofran to the patient, thirty minutes before she administered Flagyl to the patient. LVN’s conduct was deceptive, created an inaccurate medical record, and deprived the patient of nausea relief.
In response to the above incident, LVN admits there was a missed dose of Zofran and Flagyl to the patient and states she received verbal counseling for it.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(A)&(6)(H).
However, without enough evidence to prove she’s not guilty, the LVN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed her LVN license under disciplinary action.
Do not be stressed or anxious if you find yourself in a similar situation as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right RN/LVN license attorney who can help you in the case.
