Lying And Falsification Of Documents ~ Texas Board of Nursing (BON)
Mistakes happen – the wrong information gets entered into a patient’s record, or omitted entirely. You accidentally check, or neglect to check a box on some form. These types of errors are understandable.
But, if you lie or falsify documents, those acts rise to a level of deception that could affect your nursing license, and therefore your job and career.
The nursing board is concerned whenever the following types of documents are incomplete and/or inaccurate:
- medication records
- medical charts and reports
- vital signs records
- wound care sheets
- nurse assessments
- patient care plans
- applications for jobs, nursing schools, and nursing training programs
- nursing licensure forms (applications and renewals)
If you do make a mistake in your recordkeeping, the best thing you can do is immediately accept, acknowledge and report your errors.
If you have been accused of lying or falsifying documents, or have received a notice from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), you should consider hiring a nurses attorney. Throughout the entire process of defending your nursing license, we can be by your side, potentially mitigating the disciplinary sanctions that the nursing board might impose.
