Every person who wants to become a professional LVN or RN in the state of Texas needs to go through several processes. First, there is a need to complete tertiary education in a nursing school. After graduation, the next step is to take the nursing board examination. The goal is to pass the said exam in order to become part of the professional nurses in Texas. This only shows that the process is not really easy. Hence, every nurse must take care of his RN / LVN license. One wrong move can result in the suspension or revocation of the said license. But to avoid that from happening, a nurse attorney is the one who can help in license cases.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN with a non-profit health care services center in San Antonio, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.

On or about July 6, 2019, through July 7, 2019, while employed as an RN with a non-profit health care services center in San Antonio, Texas, RN failed to appropriately intervene, including failure to timely notify the physician or escalate care, when Intensive Care Unit patient experienced cardiac dysrhythmias at 0145 hours and again at 0417 hours. A Code Blue was initiated approximately two (2) hours later, but the patient could not be resuscitated. RN’s conduct resulted in a delay in emergency treatment for the patient and may have contributed to the patient’s subsequent demise.

In response, the RN states she noticed an abnormal heart rhythm on the monitor and went into the room to assess the patient, who was sleeping. RN also states she was unaware that she was supposed to notify the provider.

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(D)&(1)(M) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(10)(C)&(11)(B).

The RN failed to hire a nurse attorney for the defense regarding the accusation laid against her. Her RN license was put on disciplinary action by the Texas Board of Nursing. If only she had hired a nurse attorney, the result would have been different.
