Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving falsification of documents, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who are found to be negligent while on duty.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a health facility in San Angelo, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about January 2, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, and in the role of Executive Director, the RN falsely documented verbal orders for Morphine and Lorazepam for the Patient in that she changed the dosage of the orders without authorization. The conduct of the RN was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patient. In addition, failure to administer medications as ordered by a physician could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions.
In regards to that, the said RN states that the patient became continuously restless and fidgeting with labored breathing during her visit and that she attempted to contact the hospice medical director, but was unable to get ahold of the hospice medical director and did not hear back from her until later in the morning. Furthermore, based on her hospice experience, the patient needed more morphine to be kept comfortable. The said RN adds that she was experiencing personal issues at the time of the incident and had requested time off, but was needed to care for the patient.
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN may lose the case. Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the LVN may further.
