The assistance of a nurse attorney is needed if you’re facing a case before the Texas Board of Nursing. Your defense can be strengthened further if you’re going to face the Board. There are times where mistakes at work could be inevitable, which is why a nurse attorney can assure full assistance over such errors. Disciplinary actions could have been thought about by the Texas Board of Nursing if this particular RN from Odessa, Texas hired a nurse attorney over her case.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN with a pediatric home health service provider in Odessa, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and one (1) month.
On or about November 11, 2019, while employed as an RN with a pediatric home health service provider in Odessa, Texas, RN failed to appropriately intervene when the pulse oximeter was removed from a pediatric patient during a physical therapy session; and, RN also failed to appropriately respond, including failure to immediately initiate emergency services, when the patient presented with low O2 saturations in the ’20s once the pulse oximeter was reattached to the patient’s foot by the physical therapist. RN’s conduct exposed the patient to a risk of harm from a delay in interventions needed to prevent further complications.
In response to the incident, RN states she should have called 911 much faster. RN also states she assessed the supportive breathing that was being administered by the physical therapist before troubleshooting the alarm tubing. RN further states she should have sent the patient to the hospital once emergency services arrived on the scene.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(13), Texas Occupations Code, and a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C)&(1)(M).
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license to disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled Texas Nursing Law Attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a Texas Nurse Attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
