At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Lancaster, Texas, and had been in that position for thirteen (13) years and eleven (11) months.

On or about February 20, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN inappropriately posted protected health information, including date of service, regarding a patient to a webpage, without authorization from the patient, patient’s family and/or responsible party. The RN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to a risk of harm from disclosure of their confidential medical information without their written authorization and constitutes a violation of HIP AA (The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act).

In response, the RN admits to making the post dated February 20, 2019, however, states she felt that the post did not include any personally identifying information. The RN states she called Emergency Medical Services (EMS) on February 20, 2019, due to a student at her middle school having chest pain. She states she felt the EMS were unprofessional upon arrival and states that in her moment of outrage and concern, she left a google review for the EMS company.

As a result of the RN’s actions and the failure to hire a nurse attorney with specialized knowledge in nursing laws, which is why the Texas Board of Nursing suspended the RN’s license during the probation of the RN. Take note that any licensed professional may likely go to jail with a permanent history if they are charged with a crime. Additionally, they may also lose their license and may face the Texas Board of Nursing.
