Whenever someone filed a complaint against you which involves improper documentation, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An LVNN from San Antonio, Texas is just one of the many examples.

On or about November 2, 2014, through January 12, 2015, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in a medical facility in San Antonio, the withdrew one capsule of Lyrica 50mg, one tablet of Lorazepam 0.5mg, and nineteen tablets of Hydrocodone/APAP 5/325mg, from the medication dispensing system for patients, but failed to document, or accurately and completely document, the administration of the medications in the patients’ Medication Administration Record (MAR) and nurse’s notes.

Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the LVN denies all allegations. However, the Board states that her conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patients, which could result in an overdose. Additionally, Respondent’s conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.

Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the LVN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case.
