The presence of a RN or LVN nurse in the state of Texas has a lot of benefits to all the inhabitants of the country. These professionals have the capacity to assist every citizen or resident in times of needs. The RN or LVN nurses are willing to work day and night just to ensure that everyone is getting the health or medical assistance they need. This is the reason why a lot of people have high respect for them.
Unfortunately, there are some professional nurses who do not take their jobs seriously. Most often than not, they commit acts that would place themselves in a compromising situation. What is even worse is that in the process of being negligent, they also start to place the lives of their patients in negligence. As a result, these professionals are subjected to several complaints before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
A classic example of a negligent nurse is May who voluntarily surrendered her nursing license. While employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Houston, Texas, the LVN nurse failed to remove an Exelon Patch from a particular patient prior to the placing a new patch. Additionally, the LVN charted ahead of time that he administered the patch to the patient’s left shoulder, when he actually applied it to the right-side of the patient’s. Because of what the LVN nurse did, an administrative complaint was filed against him. It was alleged that the conduct of May resulted in an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient from overdosing of transdermal medication administration.
The acts performed by the LVN nurse while on duty clearly show that she was negligent in her job. She did not comply with the rules and regulations that are mandated in the hospital where she was employed. As such, a disciplinary case was filed against her before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). She waived her right to a counsel and voluntarily surrendered the nursing license that was issued under her name.
The case of May is only one of the several cases involving nurses. Make sure that you know what to do when it comes to complaints filed before the Board.
