A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases such as misappropriation of medication that you may deny committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.
An RN was employed as a Staff Registered Nurse at a hospital in Midland, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about September 18, 2017, through September 19, 2017, the RN failed to document the administration of two (2) doses of lactulose and one (1) dose of Novolog Low Dose Sliding Scale to a patient, in the patient’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) and/or Nurses’ Notes. The RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record and exposed the patient to the administration of excess medication.
In response, the RN states that her nursing assessment included the genitourinary system of each patient as part of her head-to-toe assessment; the omission of documentation of the specific findings and care provided was accidental.
The Texas Board of Nursing has jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the license and career of an RN or LVN. Therefore, based on the findings of the Board, the RN received disciplinary action to ensure further safety and accurate documentation as she works in the future. She should hire a nurse attorney for instances such as this.
You should have to be wise in dealing with any case and hire a nurse attorney for help to avoid decisions that you will surely regret later on.
