Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire the right nurse attorney for the case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to defend them. Unfortunately, an LVN from Sherman, Texas happens to be one of them.
On or about May 4, 2015, through August 20, 2015, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in Sherman, Texas, and assigned to care for a patient, the LVN falsified medical records and time sheets for visits conducted with the patient.
The LVN added care notes during hours she did not see the patient and submitted time sheets for hours not actually worked. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the LVN for hours not actually worked.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, The LVN states that she was working three jobs just to make ends meet as she is going through school and paying out of pocket to avoid student loans.
Despite her explanation, the Texas Board of Nursing still placed her under disciplinary action. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she has a defense to the accusations.
Additionally, she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, causing her to lose her LVN license.
