Whenever someone filed a complaint against you which involves false documentation, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Fort Worth, Texas is just one of the many examples.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN with a health care agency in Fort Worth, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.
On or about April 8, 2018, while employed as an RN with a health care agency in Fort Worth, Texas, and assigned to provide skilled nursing to a patient, RN submitted nursing notes for visits that were either not conducted, or conducted at different times than those documented as having been worked. RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the RN for hours not actually worked. In addition, RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D)&(3).
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side but the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to revoke her RN license.
