A knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases that you may have never done intentionally or directly. Take note that failure to hire a proper nurse attorney could subject you and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of the case and its negative impact to the hospital or patients.

On or about May 6, 2008, the RN administered Clozapine to a patient. However, the said medication was not ordered by a physician. The resulting action could have injured the patient, as well as experience adverse effects such as respiratory arrest, seizures and tachycardia.

On or about May 20, 2010, the RN also administered incorrect medications to the patient. Additionally, no physician ordered such medications. Thus, the RN could have caused injury to the patient, as well as result in certain adverse effects. This action could already subject the RN to suspension or disciplinary action, depending on the RN’s defense once a hearing has been ordered.

The RN was eventually summoned for a hearing to defend against her case. However, she simply said that she never committed the complaint filed against her as she reviewed all medications correctly. She also told the Board that she followed orders only to ensure their health and utmost safety.

Unfortunately, the RN does not have the correct evidence, along with the fact that she did not hire any nurse attorney for her defense. Thus, the Texas Board of Nursing placed the RN license into disciplinary procedures to ensure that she will never commit the same mistakes again. Gladly, she did not receive a suspension order.

For those who are at risk of facing disciplinary action or suspension due to issues regarding wrong administration of medicine, it’s best to contact an experienced nurse attorney instead.
