Any allegation or complaint could result in the worst, which is why a nurse attorney is needed for such allegation cases. However, some who thought they were guilty of the charges failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they think it’s the end of their license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed at a hospital in Garland, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and four (4) months.
On or about December 14, 2017, through January 9, 2018, while employed at a hospital in Garland, Texas, the RN withdrew medication for patients under incorrect/expired prescription numbers on six (6) occasions. The RN’s conduct evidences a failure to be mindful of which physician orders are active.
In response to the incident, the RN states that the medications were withdrawn under the correct prescription/order numbers, which then expired between the time of withdrawal and the time of administration. For some of these incidents, the RN obtained and documented stat administration orders from the provider so the medication withdrawal and administration appeared under different prescription/order numbers.
As a result of the RN’s misconduct, the evidence received is sufficient cause pursuant to Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, to take disciplinary action against the RN. The RN could have prevented or avoided such an unfortunate event if she had hired a nurse attorney to represent her in court. Having a nurse attorney for assistance and support is a game-changer to the RN’s end.
A nurse attorney is the most effective defense to have when dealing with cases as they had the right experience and is also an expert regarding nurse case.
