The work that nurses do is often unappreciated. And sometimes, a bit of negligence could lead to a more serious scenario such as filing a suit against them. If this happens to an RN, they should know how to protect and defend themselves. If not properly defended by a nurse attorney, their license could even be suspended or revoked.
On or about December 23, 2017, while employed in a medical facility in Amarillo, the RN allegedly failed to discontinue the intravenous catheter from the arteriovenous (AV) fistula of a female patient before discharging the patient.
Additionally, the RN allegedly falsely documented that she discontinued the intravenous catheter and then noted that there were positive bruit and thrill before and after placement and when discontinued.
This conduct by the RN resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the female patient from AV fistula access complications.
Because of the incident, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the RN to hear her side of the story. However, without the proper help from a good nurse attorney, the RN lost the case and she was disciplined and suspended.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license to disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring an Amarillo nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
