An experienced nurse attorney has surely helped a lot of RNs and LVNs when it comes to cases that may lead to disciplinary action. Unfortunately, not all nurses were able to hire a nurse attorney as they underwent such cases. This incident that an RN committed was one of those examples.

An incident happened on or about December 3, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in Bryan, Texas, the RN failed to discontinue the intravenous catheter from the arteriovenous (AV) fistula of a patient before discharging the patient. Additionally, the RN falsely documented that she discontinued the intravenous catheter and then noted that there was positive bruit and thrill before and after placement and when discontinued. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient from AV fistula access complications.

The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452 (b) (10) & (13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE.

The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.

It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
