When the Texas Board of Nursing summons you to appear before the court, hiring the best nurse attorney is crucial. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an LVN from Temple, Texas committed in November 2020 was one of those examples.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an LVN at a healthcare facility and rehabilitation center in Temple, Texas, and had been in that position for six (6) years and eleven (11) months.
On or about November 27, 2020, while employed as an LVN at a healthcare facility and rehabilitation center in Temple, Texas, LVN initiated cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for the patient by starting chest compressions but failed to ensure that rescue breaths were provided. The patient was subsequently pronounced deceased by Emergency Medical Services (EMS). LVN’s conduct may have contributed to the resident’s demise.
In response, LVN admits she initiated CPR but did not provide rescue breaths due to the resident being in quarantine for COVID-19 monitoring and there were no mouth barrier masks available.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(M)&(2) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A), (1)(B)&(4).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the LVN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the LVN’s license under disciplinary action.
