Accusations at work are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, the following RN failed to do so.
An RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Fort Hood, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and three (3) months.
It was on or about November 9, 2018, the RN placed an improper medical restraint on a Patient by taping the patient’s hands and feet to the patient’s bed rails. Additionally, the RN advised staff that she taped the patient’s hands and feet to the bed rails while drawing a specimen for the laboratory. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the use of an improper restraint could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions and/or physical, mental, or emotional harm.
In response to the above incident, the RN states she was taught early in her nursing career that she could secure a confused patient’s wrist with a wrap of two (2) inch silk tape, as this did not qualify as restraint, but rather was immobilizing a patient for a necessary procedure.
Unfortunately, without an experienced El Paso nurse attorney to help her defend her case, she was disciplined and might get suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
