Accusations at work are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations against them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, the following RN failed to do so.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Greenville, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) years and four (4) months.
On or about May 30, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN withdrew one (1) syringe of Morphine 2mg from the medication dispensing system of a patient but failed to document and/or completely and accurately document the administration of the medication in the patient’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) and/or nurses’ notes. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient, in that subsequent caregivers would rely on his documentation to further medicate the patient, which could result in an overdose. Additionally, the RN’s conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
On or about May 30, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN withdrew one (1) syringe of Morphine 2mg from the medication dispensing system for the patient but failed to follow the facility policy and procedures for wastage of the unused portions of the medications. The RN’s conduct left medications unaccounted for, was likely to deceive the hospital pharmacy, and placed the pharmacy in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
On or about May 30, 2019, through May 31, 2019, the RN failed to administer vancomycin to a patient as ordered by a physician and failed to adequately communicate the status of the patient to the medical team.
