Every person who wants to become a professional LVN or RN in the state of Texas needs to go through several processes. This is the main reason why you should be careful when doing your job, or else, complaints or charges might be filed against you. Without the help of a nurse attorney, you might get suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Plano, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) years and nine (9) months.
On or about March 17, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, and assigned to a patient in a secure unit, the RN failed to provide a safe environment for the patient in that, the RN failed to redirect the patient’s assigned observer to be within one arm’s reach of the patient and the RN failed to safely exit the unit, which allowed the patient to exit behind her and leave the facility premises. Consequently, the patient was found at his home the following day. The RN’s conduct was likely to cause emotional, physical, and/or psychological harm to the patient and could have interfered with or disrupted this patient’s treatment.
In response, the RN states the unit was short-staffed and that when she was exiting the unit, the patient jumped up, slammed her into the door, and went out the back entrance before she could scream.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right nurse attorney to handle her case. This had caused and led to the suspension of the RN license.
