An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action, suspension, or revocation. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.

At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse (RN) at a hospital facility in Sugar Land, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and eight (8) months.

On or about November 15, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse (RN), the RN falsely documented patient positioning of the patient by the surgeon, the certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA), and herself at 0615. However, the patient was not taken to the operating room until 0656. The RN’s conduct was deceptive and created an inaccurate medical record.

In response, the RN states she was getting the room ready for a patient procedure and thinks she hit the button to auto-populate her chart.

As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license in disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a nurse attorney for assistance, knowing that she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.

So if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Texas Nurse Attorney Yong J.
