Minor errors at work are stressfulissues for an RN or LVN, except when a nurse attorney assists you against thecase. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke, suspend or only discipline theirlicense. Take note that nurse attorneys can also defend a nurse’s licenseagainst accusations, which may include minor errors at work.

Any type of accusations can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney 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.

A perfect example of this happened to an RN in Houston. During the time of the initial incident, she was employed in a medical facility and had been in the position for just eight months.

On or about January 20, 2016, the RN documented and submitted skilled nursing visit notes for two patients for January 20, 2016, but she actually completed the visits on January 19, 2016.  The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record.

This is a matter that seems to be an accusation if the RN has a proper reason that shall consider the accusation false. The RN was summoned before the Board to defend against the case.

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.

The Texas Board of Nursing has jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the license and career of an RN or LVN. Therefore, based on the findings of the Board, the RN received a disciplinary action to ensure further safety and accurate documentation as she works in the future. She should hire a nurse attorney for instances such as this.
