There are times where mistakes at work could be inevitable, which is why a nurse attorney can assure full assistance over such errors. Misappropriation of medication is just one of the common mistakes an RN or an LVN commits. Disciplinary actions could have been thought about by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) if this particular RN from Bryan, Texas hired a nurse attorney over her case.
An RN was employed at a hospital in Lubbock, Texas, at the time of the incident and while employed as a Registered Nurse and assigned to a patient. The RN failed to take precautions to misappropriate Fentanyl from the patient in that another nurse noted the bag was empty when the bag should have had 42ml left, from a 100ml bag, the pump stated 58ml had been infused. The RN’s conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of the medications.
The above incident and action of the RN constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452 (b) (10), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE.
The Texas Board of Nursing has jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the license and career of an RN or LVN. Therefore, based on the findings of the Texas Board of Nursing (BON), the RN received disciplinary action to ensure further safety and accurate documentation as she works in the future. She should hire a nurse attorney for instances such as this.
