Thank you for the additional information.
Fortunately, as the script was called in without authorization, the clinic and the physician are at no risk of civil or criminal
However, the LVN violated the law by prescribing without a license or actual authority. This is a very serious violation---both of the law and of the obligation to follow company policy. Pregnant or not, this employee may be immediately terminated for cause. She will have no legal recourse against the employer based on her pregnancy.
Additionally, under the circumstances, this is something that should be reported to the state Board of Nursing, as well as to local police.
You are free to terminate her based on this intentional and egregious sort of misconduct.
