The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN in Texas. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the state of Texas. Any RN or LVN who is guilty of violating state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) may be subjected to penalties or fines if not properly defended by a Katy nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked. L100470N1874
A perfect example of this incident happened to a nurse in Katy.
On or about December 5, 2007, the LVN falsified residents’ medical records in that she documented that she had done procedures and/or treatments for twenty-six (26) residents from December 5, 2007 through December 7, 2007, before she had actually performed these procedures and/or treatments.
Her conduct was deceiving and created an inaccurate medical record on which subsequent caregivers would rely on to provide ongoing medical care.
In response to the incident, the LVN states that she pre-charted because she knew her patients so well.
Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing investigated the nurse and suspended her license.
However, without valid evidence and an expert nurse attorney to defend her, the LVN was suspended and disciplined.
Any case can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney in Katy ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
The LVN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
