At the time of the incident, she was employed as an LVN with a nursing home care provider in Georgetown, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and three (3) months.
On or about April 29, 2019, while employed as an LVN with a nursing home care provider in Georgetown, Texas, LVN inappropriately delegated the administration of respiratory medication, Duoneb, for a patient to an unlicensed nurse assistant. LVN prepared the Duoneb nebulizer treatment when she was not in the resident’s room, and then she handed the medication to the nurse assistant with instructions to administer the patient’s nebulizer medication. Subsequently, after attempting to administer the medication, the nurse assistant exited the room, the resident’s family discovered fluid on the floor and in the tubing for the nasal cannula, but no medication in the nebulizer chamber. LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from adverse effects of medications administered improperly.
In response, LVN reports a family member requested she give the patient a duoneb treatment that the family member would watch. A nursing assistant was going to the same room so LVN asked the assistant to give the duoneb treatment to the family member.
