Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, 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.
In Austin, an LVN is charged with negligence which resulted in a suspension by the Texas Board of Nursing.
On or about September 20, 1999, the LVN received a telephone order to administer an antibiotic IV to a patient. However, the LVN failed to record this order inpatient record and as a result, the patient failed to receive the antibiotic until approximately twelve (12) hours after it was ordered.
Failure to record a physician’s order into a patient’s medical record constitutes conduct that falls below the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing nursing practice.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the LVN denies all allegations. However, the Board states that she failed to conform to, the minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing nursing practice.
Furthermore, the LVN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
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.
