Whenever someone filed a complaint against you which involves false documentation, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a Temple nurse attorney. An RN from Temple, Texas is just one of the many examples.
An incident happened to an RN in 2018. At the time of the incident, RN was employed as an On-Call / Triage Nurse with a hospice care provider in Temple, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) years and three (3) months.
On or about November 1, 2018, while employed as an On-Call / Triage Nurse with a hospice care provider in Temple, Texas, RN falsely documented in the medical record of a patient receiving phone orders for sixteen (16) medications from the physician, Certification of Terminal Illness, and collaborating with physician(s) for the patient’s initial Plan of Care (POC). The physician(s) for the patient did not provide written and/or verbal orders for the patient to receive medications, did not sign the Certification of Terminal Illness, and did not collaborate with the RN to establish the patient’s Plan of Care (POC). RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In response, the RN states she notified the physician to discuss the patient’s admission, and the physician ordered the continuation of the patient’s previous medications, including Hospice comfort medications. RN states the information provided by the physician(s) was misleading and omitted the fact they discussed matters pertaining to the patient and that they issued verbal orders.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.463(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and are a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B)(1)(D)&(1)(P) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(6)(A).
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty of her deeds. Her RN license was subjected to disciplinary action. She did not hire a skilled Temple Nurse Attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
