Any error at work is a stressful issue for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs who are undergoing a case in which they that may revoke, suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that a nurse attorney can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations, which may include minor errors at work.
At the time of the incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a health facility in Pharr, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) months.
On or about August 24, 2019, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the said LVN failed to administer scheduled medications to several Patients as ordered by the physician. The said LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that failing to administer medications as ordered by the physician could result in non-efficacious treatment.
Concerning the events, the LVN states on the date in question, he was not feeling well and arrived late for work, but he notified his director that he was running behind and needed help, and the director assured him that facility staff would help him, but he never received help. It was further asserted by the LVN that he did as best as he could until the DON and nursing staff arrived at 2 pm, he added that his situation was unfair, but he takes full responsibility for his actions.
However, due to the lack of a nurse attorney to help her properly defend her side, the RN was put into discipline by the Texas Board of Nursing.
Avoid the same thing from happening in your case. Make sure to take the necessary steps in dealing with a complaint filed before the Board against you or else, your RN license may be put in danger.
If you received a letter from the Texas Board of Nursing for negligence or any other offense, it is best to consult an experienced Texas nurse attorney who can guide you on the steps you need to take to protect your RN or LVN license.
