An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issues from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.

At the time of the initial incident, an LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Waco, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and two (2) months.

On or about April 25, 2017, April 29, 2017, and April 30, 2017, the LVN withdrew Norco 10/325mg, Norco 5/325mg, and Lorazepam 1 mg, from the medication dispensing system for patients in excess frequency and/or dosage of the physicians’ orders. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients, in that the administration of Norco and Lorazepam in excess frequency and/or dosage of the physician’s orders could result in the patients suffering adverse reactions. Additionally, the LVN’s conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.

In response, the LVN states orders can change, and to view if a PRN medication was given outside of that changed order, you need to view it in All Orders.
