Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Allen, Texas, is just one of those examples.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse (RN) at a medical facility in Allen, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years.
On or about January 1 7, 201 9, through February 18, 201 9, while employed as a Registered Nurse (RN) and Alternate Administrator at a healthcare facility, the RN documented that she provided nursing care, including full assessments and hourly narratives, for a pediatric patient continuously for twenty-four (24) hours a day. The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record.
Regarding the incident and upon investigation, the RN stated that the Administrator misunderstood Medicaid’s regulations and the preauthorization for the patient to receive 24/7 care. The RN states that in January 2019 and February 2019, she took care of the patient based on the facility’s already implemented practice of 24-hour shifts. And that she believed that Medicaid knew she was providing 24-hour care and that it was approved. The RN states she now recognizes her misunderstanding of the Medicaid pre-authorization. The RN adds that no harm came to the patient and she has never been disciplined by the Board.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) suspended and disciplined the RN.
