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 nurse attorney. As a matter of fact, the RN license and LVN license can even be suspended or revoked.

A perfect example of this incident happened on or about January 11, 2015, when an RN from El Paso was accused that she failed to assess and failed to completely and accurately document assessments of a patient before and after ordered nebulizer treatments.

In addition, she was accused that she failed to administer and failed to completely and accurately document the administration or holding of Albuterol 2.5mg/3ml 0.083% for another patient. Her conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the resident in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the resident, which could result in non-efficacious treatment.

When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN denies the allegations and states that she fully and completely documented each and every item alleged to have gone undocumented. She states that she would locate and take possession of the “Care Guide“, and as she went from patient to patient, the Care Guide was used to document patient care including handwritten vitals and the administration of medication and treatments. Prior to the end of the shift, the RN states she would transfer the information to the MARITAL by again handwriting the information onto that document. The RN further states that the hospital is withholding these documents.

The RN further states that she monitored the student closely for signs of low blood sugar because she suspected the medication change may affect it. She states that the student’s blood sugar was checked throughout the morning.

However, without valid evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined.

This is just one of the many cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Any form of gross negligence, disobedience or any form of offense on the part of a RN or LVN is never excused.

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.

The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
