It is a nurse’s duty to ensure patients are getting the proper treatment they need in a timely manner. They should also follow the physician’s order and no order should be missed. A missed order could harm a patient. Some RNs tend to miss orders and result in unnecessary harm to a patient. If this happens, an RN should be prepared in case he or she will be summoned by the Board for such conduct. An RN can hire a nurse attorney for this matter.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Odessa, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) months.
On or about March 2, 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Odessa, Texas, RN failed to administer an IV antibiotic to a patient as ordered by a physician. Subsequently, RN documented that she did not see the medication on the Medication Administration Record (MAR). RN’s conduct was likely to injure the resident in that failure to administer medications as ordered by a physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In response to the incident, RN states that she recognizes that she made an error in not administering the IV antibiotic as ordered by the physician.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10),(12)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(J)&(1)(T) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(E),(4),(6)(A),(6)(C),(6)(D),(6)(F),(6)(G) & (6)(H).
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side but the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to place her RN license on disciplinary action.
