If you are a nurse in Fort Worth who is in jeopardy with the Texas Board of Nursing, you should call an experienced nurse attorney in Fort Worth for help.Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases.
Unfortunately, an LVN from Fort Worth failed to do this. This results in disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing. Always keep in mind that the Texas Board of Nursing handles all of the cases that may affect the license from receiving the suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation.
However, with a right nurse attorney for the case, rest assured that the case can go according to the nurse’s favor, especially if the LVN has a good defense against the case.
On or about November 22, 2019, while employed as a Staff Nurse, the LVN incorrectly administered Norco 7.5/325 mg to a patient. The order was for Norco 10/325 mg. Her conduct could have exposed the patient to a risk of harm from suffering pain unnecessarily.
On or about February 9, 2019, while employed as a Staff Nurse in the same medical facility, the same LVN again failed to administer Rocephin 1 gm intravenous (IV), as ordered to a patient.
Additionally, she incorrectly administered 1/2 normal saline (NS) with Potassium 20 meg to the aforementioned patient before a nurse caught the error and administered the ordered one-half (1/2) NS at 75 cc/hour.
On or about February 14, 2019, while employed as a Staff Nurse, the LVN again failed to administer Zosyn 3.375 gm IV as ordered to a patient.
In addition, the LVN incorrectly administered 1/2 NS with Potassium 20 meq to the aforementioned patient before a nurse caught the error and administered the ordered one-half(1/2) NS at 75 cc/hour.
The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from delayed treatment, and from adverse effects of taking a medication that was not ordered by the provider.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. She states that when she realized she gave the wrong strength to Norco in November 2019, she notified the charge nurse and filled out an incident report.
The LVN states that regarding the incident on February 9, 2019, she was not made aware of the incident regarding Rocephin until the Peer Review, but she was aware of the one-half NS error at the time and signed the incident report.
The LVN states that regarding the incident in February 2019, she hung the bag but failed to open the clamp, so it did not get administered in a timely manner.
