Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving falsification of documents, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who found to be negligent while on duty.
On or about February 22, 2016the RN falsified information pertaining to a staff nurse who had forcefully shoved a patient to the floor with both arms, causing the patient to strike her or her head against a door. She reported the staff nurse had raised her hands to block the patient from running into her. The RN’s conduct was deceptive and could have interfered or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. The RN states the patient refused to give her hat, which was not allowed on the unit. The RN states when the patient saw the staff nurse had her hat, the patient ran across the room toward the staff nurse. The RN states her observation was the staff nurse raised her hands to block the patient from running into the nurse, and the patient ran into the nurse’s hands and fell back.
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case.
