Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about September 2018 and October 2018, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a hospital in Harlingen, the LVN submitted nursing notes for visits that were conducted at different times than those documented as having been worked. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the LVN for hours not actually worked. In addition, her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one that has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.
During the hearing, the LVN admits that on or about September 2018 and October 2018, some notes that were documented in the system were posted at different times than they were actually done.
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.
