If someone filed an accusation against you, it may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
An instance when an accusation was filed against an LVN happened on or about February to March 2017. During the time of the incident, the LVN was currently employed in a rehabilitation center in Texas.
During the said date, the LVN failed to notify the physician when a patient a dialysis patient, was not receiving Sensipar as ordered. The physician ordered the daily administration of Sensipar, but the patient was not administered the medication during this time period.
Consequently, the patient’s parathyroid hormone (PTH) level increased from 432 mg/L to 1244 ng/L, which was double the patient’s maximum goal range. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient from risks of elevated PTH including weak bones and calcification of tissues and organs.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, she states: “I noticed Patient JT did not have Sensipar in stock. I did notify the pharmacy to resupply. I did fail to notify the doctor, but I assumed someone else did. I should have followed up with the doctor about it.”
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the LVN.
The Texas Board of Nursing found the LVN’s conduct was grossly negligent. Thus, the LVN was found guilty and her LVN license was disciplined and suspended.
She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
