You can actually receive the best defense possible through a nurse attorney even if you experienced a simple error at work. This is what a certain RN should have done when she faced a complaint regarding a very minimal mistake that she committed during her shift at a hospital.
On or about 2013 through 201 5, while licensed as a Registered Nurse in the State of Texas, the RN performed therapeutic phlebotomies on her family member in her home, which was an unsafe environment, without the presence of a physician’s order. The RN’s conduct placed her family member at risk of ineffective treatment.
In response to the incident, the RN states that there was a period of time that her family member was under the treatment of a physician for a health condition requiring therapeutic phlebotomy. The RN states that he would get lab work through his Primary Care Physician and then follow up for the phlebotomies. The RN states that the family member asked her if this was something that she could do at home. The RN states that she can only recall two separate occasions where this occurred but has no recollection of the dates. The RN states that her family member was not forced by her to do this against his will and that it was his persistence that finally convinced her to do it. The RN states that she made these choices under immense psychological and emotional strain.
The LVN was unable to provide any proper defense due to a lack of a nurse attorney for assistance. The lack of assistance caused the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) to place her LVN license into disciplinary action to ensure that she will never cause such issues in the future. This is why it’s always better to seek the help of a nurse attorney in order to receive the best protection possible to further secure your career.
Do not let the Texas Board of Nursing provide the sentence to you. Instead, find the right defense in order to find the right punishment based on your actions because a good defense can always provide a good protection, even if it won’t actually save you fully from any accusations or mistakes while at work.
