A nurse attorney should be hired at all times whenever you undergo a case that may affect your RN license. This is what an RN from Lubbock, Texas should have done when she received a complaint regarding errors in her work. Take note that the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) can settle matters with a nurse attorney if one is present with the respondent during a case.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Lubbock, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and ten (10) months.
On or about October 17, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN submitted a Respirator Fit Test Record from her personal company, in which she documented the date the test was performed in an attempt to make it appear current. The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate employee record and could have confused her facility.
In response, the RN states that she noticed her FIT test expired on September 19, 2019, the same day she originally completed the test two years ago. The RN states that the test was redone that day by the same individual and the document was used with only the current date updated. The RN states the test was originally completed on September 19, 2017.
However, due to a lack of evidence and an expert nurse attorney to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined.
This is just one of the cases why every nurse in Texas is expected to act with prudence in practicing the profession. Gross negligence or disobedience on the part of an RN or LVN is never excused.
She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
