Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about January 11, 2015, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a medical facility in Highland Village, the RN inaccurately documented in the record of a patient that she held the administration of Lovenox 40mg/0.4ml subcutaneously when she administered the medication. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the resident in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the resident, which could result in an overdose.
On or about July 6, 2015, through July 16, 2015, the RN failed to assess and failed to completely and accurately document assessments of a patient before and after ordered nebulizer treatments. Her conduct was likely to injure the residents from clinical care decisions based on incomplete assessment information.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side. During the hearing, the RN denies the allegations and states that she fully and completely documented each and every item alleged to have gone undocumented. She states that she would locate and take possession of the “Care Guide“, and as she went from patient to patient, the Care Guide was used to document patient care including handwritten vitals and the administration of medication and treatments.
However, the RN without the help of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
