A RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney.  Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.

One such incident happened to a RN on or about July 6, 2017. During the time of the incident she was currently employed as a staff nurse in medical facility in Midland, Texas.

On or about July 6, 2017, the RN failed to fully assess and document the assessment of a patient prior to and after the administration of Nitroglycerin for complaint of chest pain.

In addition, the RN failed to secure medication, and ensure appropriate administration when she left two (2) tablets of Nitroglycerin at the bedside for the patient to self-administer if the patient’s chest pain continued. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient from clinical care decisions based on incomplete assessment information and subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation in order to provide further patient care. 

In response to the incident, the RN states that on July 6, 2017, while she was in patient’s room during shift change to obtain information for completion of admission profile, the patient complained of chest pain. The patient told the RN that the patient had previously been prescribed nitroglycerin to take at home and requested that the RN leave extra tablets in the room for the oncoming nurse to administer. She informed the oncoming nurse that the tablets were left in the patient’s room and requested that the nurse check on the patient immediately.

Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.

The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license.The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license.  It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.

The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.

A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
