When the Texas Board of Nursing summoned you to appear before the court, hiring the best nurse attorney is crucial. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an RN committed in September 2018 was one of those examples.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as a licensed vocational nurse in a medical facility in Boerne and had been in that position for approximately one year and three months.
On or about September 28, 2018, through September 29, 2018, while employed with the aforementioned facility and assigned to provide nursing care for a patient, the RN allegedly submitted falsified visit notes showing care she did not provide to the patient and times that she was not there. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record, which was likely to deceive other caregivers who rely on information from other providers to further base their care.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding errors committed by an RN or LVN. Thus, she was called by the Board to defend against the case.
In response to the accusations against her, the RN states she let everyone know by text she was not going to make it those two days. She explains that the mother of the client, and she all spoke and she let them know those charts were submitted incorrectly. She states that the patient understood and just asked for them to be corrected.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
Always remember that anyone can file a complaint against an RN with the state board for any reason.
