Nurses facing any they never committed or wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation or any charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the RN from Houston should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On or about February 28, 2015, while employed as the Executive Director in a hospital in Houston, the RN failed to verify conflicting physician move-in orders for a Resident concerning medications, diet, and home health. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient from subsequent care decisions made without the benefit of accurate information.
The RN was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. The RN states that prior to the Resident’s move in after regular hours on February 28, 2015, she verified with the rehabilitation facility where the resident was transferred from that the resident was able to self-inject her insulin. The RN explains that she consolidated the resident’s orders to reflect that the resident was able to self-administer insulin.
The RN states that she and the resident care coordinator spoke to an employee of the resident’s primary care physician who confirmed that the resident could self-administer insulin.
Despite her explanation, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
