Deficient Record Keeping

Deficient Record Keeping

Keeping paper records on the shelves.

Nurses are required to meticulously maintain patient records. Deficient record keeping is often used by the Board of Registered Nursing and Board of Vocational Nursing and Psychiatric Technicians to call a nurse’s abilities into question during disciplinary proceedings.

From our Los Angeles area office, S J Harris Law helps nurses throughout California protect their licenses during every stage of the licensure discipline process.

Deficient Record Keeping In Professional License Defense

Patient records include care plans, medication administration information, health assessments, observations and any other patient diaries or notes relating to a patient’s health and care.

Failing to keep proper records can alone be enough to bring disciplinary action against a nurse. If the nursing board finds that you have not been keeping records consistent with sound clinical judgment, you may be at risk of having your license suspended, or being placed on probation. This not only puts your livelihood at risk, but it can also irreparably damage your professional reputation.

Evidence of a nurse’s deficient record keeping can also be used as evidence to support the discipline of a nurse’s license.

One of the biggest mistakes nurses make is believing their nursing board is on their side. This is not the case. The boards of Registered and Vocational Nursing have the primary purpose to regulate RNs, LVNs and nurse practitioners, and to hold them accountable for any alleged missteps. It is important to hire an experienced license defense attorney who is on your side. At S J Harris Law, we do everything in our power to protect our clients’ nursing licenses.
