On or about October 16, 2017, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in El Paso, the LVN submitted a fraudulent verification form for skilled nursing care she did not perform for a patient, in that she admitted the patient was not home at the time of the documented visit, and admitted to forging the patient’s signature on the form.

She also submitted a fraudulent verification form for skilled nursing care she did not perform for a patient, in that she back-dated a form to October 21, 2017, so as to make it look as though she had conducted a scheduled visit.

The LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to defraud and deceive the facility of money paid to the LVN for hours not actually worked.

Additionally, her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.

The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.

During the hearing, the LVN states she arrived to the patient’s home, but the patient was not there. After several attempts, the LVN states the patient told her to sign the verification form, as she tried to make the visit. She also admits she back-dated the form, but believed it was acceptable to change the visit date.

However, 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.
