An experienced Houston nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead toward disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a Houston nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.

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

On or about April 16, 2021 through April 22, 2021, while employed as an LVN and assigned to provide nursing care for a patient, the LVN falsely documented nursing care fòr a twelve (12) hour shift when she had been leaving early and tailed to noti(S’ agency staff. Additionally, the LVN told the patient’s parent to tell the office she went to lunch if they called and she was not at the residence. The LVN’s conduct was deceptive and created an inaccurate medical record.

In response, LVN admits on April 16th, she left her shift between 4:30pm and 5pm due to not feeling well and clocked out at 7pm. The LVN states she asked the mom if she could leave early and she said no problem. According to the LVN, on April 22nd, she had a personal emergency and left at 4:50pm, but clocked out at 7pm. The LVN states she gave report to the mom and left without notifying the office. When the office called, the LVN told them she was at dinner. The LVN is sorry she violated the rule, feels bad for the patient, and says it was a hard time and literallv everything was not going well. The LVN adds she was exhausted and ox helmed but no matter what. she should’ve clocked out at the time she left.

The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) to place the LVN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She would have sought assistance from a good Houston nurse attorney to provide clarifications towards the case.
