When someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about February 23, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a hospital in Houston, the RN falsely documented the administration of 2mg (2 milligrams) of Hydromorphone in the Medication Administration Record (MAR) for a patient in that she wasted the entire Hydromorphone 15mg syringe.
Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record and failure to administer medication as ordered by the physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.
During the hearing, the RN states when it comes to patient safety and medication and administration she takes much caution to ensure safe medication preparation and administration and practices the seven (7) rights of medication administration. The RN further states no patient harm came from her actions.
The RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Having all these problems was never easy and should never be dealt with alone. You need someone who can help you at times like these, someone that is very reliable and knows what to do if you are facing such allegations or accusations. Any problem always has a solution.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case.
