It’s best to seek the help of an experienced, skilled nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face the results instead and tend to forget the fact that a nurse attorney is what they need when accused of numerous accusations. Because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error.
An RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at an OB/GYN Clinic in Corpus Christi, Texas, and had been in that position for nine (9) months.
It was on or about March 8, 2018, when the RN breached confidentiality regarding the Nursing Peer Review Committee (NPRC). The RN discussed a member of the NPRC with her husband and other staff.
The RN’s conduct was likely to injure patients and/or committee members in that disclosing confidential information to an unauthorized individual could have caused private patient and/or committee member information to be inappropriately distributed.
In response to the incident above, the RN states she discussed the matter with a physician and does not believe she should be penalized for talking to her husband about this matter.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney in San Antonio for assistance if she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.
So, if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is willing to assist every nurse in need of immediate help for nurse licensing cases. To contact him, please dial (832)-428-5679 for a confidential consultation or for more inquiries.
