At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse (RN) at a hospital in Bryan, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and two (2) months.
On or about April 17, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse (RN), the RN administered a Hepatitis B vaccine to a newborn patient without obtaining a signed written consent form from the patient’s mother.
In response, the RN states she asked the patient’s mom if it would be okay to administer the Hepatitis vaccine at the same time as the Vitamin K. The RN states the parents agreed so she continued with the admission. The RN states she went ahead and gave the admission medication, including the Hepatitis vaccine, and documented it soon after completing the admission. The RN states that the Team Leader went to get the admission consent signed, including the Hepatitis B vaccine; however, the mom would not sign the consent for the vaccine at that time.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right nurse attorney to handle her case. The absence of a nurse attorney can affect and lead to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
