Whenever someone filed a complaint against you which involves negligence, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples.
On or about January 31, 2018, the RN failed to administer morning medications to the patient as ordered by a physician. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer morning medications as ordered by a physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In addition, the RN failed to properly assess and document assessments for the patient. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. In response, the RN admits to not administering the morning medications to the patient because she was instructed by the patient’s mother to not wake the patient. She also admits she did do assessments but failed to document the assessment properly because of user error with the tablet.
However, the Board states that her conduct placed the pharmacy and hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
Furthermore, 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.
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. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
