Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about April 2018, through May 2018, while employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Dallas, the LVN falsified patient vital signs and visual acuity documentation when she did not perform the tasks.
In addition, the LVN lacked fitness to practice professional nursing in that she appeared drowsy, was seen falling asleep at a desk, slurred her speech and had an unsteady gait. Her conduct was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to base their care. Furthermore, her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle sisigns, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.
However, the LVN without the help of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
