When the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has a complaint against you, you should seek a Midland Nurse Attorney. Any RN or LVN in Texas found guilty of violating the state laws and regulations may be subjected to a disciplinary case such as suspension or revocation of their RN or LVN license.

An example of this happened to an LVN in 2019. At the time of the incident, she was employed as an LVN with a nursing facility in Midland, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and five (5) months.

On or about September 5, 2019, while employed as an LVN with a nursing facility in Midland, Texas, LVN failed to review a patient’s allergies when the provider ordered Levaquin. Instead, LVN wrote a verbal order and added Levaquin to the Medication Administration Record for the Patient, who had a known allergy to the drug. LVN’s conduct was likely to harm the patient from the expected effects of an anaphylactic reaction.

The Texas Board of Nursing gave the LVN a chance to defend her case. In response, LVN states when she received a call for this order, she was assisting another patient. LVN did not have the Medication Administration Record (MAR) nearby, so she took the verbal order and wrote it down. Once LVN was finished with the other patient, the oncoming nurse was clocked in and ready to take over the patients, so LVN reported the order was received, but it had not been reviewed or administered.

The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(D),(1)(M)&(1)(N) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C)&(4).

Unfortunately, LVN failed to hire the services of an expert attorney when a disciplinary case was filed against her. This resulted in her license being placed under disciplinary action by the Texas BON.

Any RN or LVN should never commit errors, negligence, or misconduct in work as it may affect their performance, which may lead to further issues to the patients they are taking care of. Additionally, if you ever undergo cases such as this, it’s best to seek the assistance of a good Midland nurse attorney as it could make the case better in your favor.
