Anyone can file a complaint against an RN with the state board for any reason. When this happens, all complaints need to be taken seriously no matter how trivial or unfounded they may appear. A nurse attorney is someone who can help you defend your license when the state board summoned you. This is what the RN from Lubbock should have done when she was called by the Board.
On or about May 14, 2018, through May 15, 2018, while employed as the Director of Nursing in a medical facility in Lubbock, the RN instructed an employee under her supervision to falsely document treatment flowsheets for three patients. Further, the RN was observed falsifying neuro-checks on one patient.
The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate information on which to base their care decisions.
In response to the accusation, the RN denies instructing nurses under her supervision to falsify records. Respondent states she told the staff to actually do the tasks.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
If the Texas Board of Nursing summoned you in court, it is imperative to notify a nurse attorney immediately. Attorney Yong J. An has assisted numerous nursing license cases since 2006.
