Nurses can be working in very different conditions. They have to endure long hours and sometimes, poor and understaffed environments. Because of this, they sometimes commit negligence due to a stressful working environment. When this happens, you must approach one of the most experienced nurse defense lawyer in Houston.
On or about August 6, 2018 while in a hospital in Houston, the RN allegedly failed to scan the feeding label on donor breast milk against the armband of a patient prior to administration.
As a result, a syringe of milk with the wrong label was found by the oncoming nursing shift. Her conduct could have exposed the patient to risk of infectious disease and chemical contaminants.
During the hearing by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN states the bin was empty so she called down for more donor breast milk. Once the milk arrived, she scanned the patient’s Donor Milk label that matched the patient’s armband but labeled the patient’s donor breast milk syringe with the wrong label.
The RN states that the hospital had instituted a new milk scanning procedure while she was on an extended vacation and he had not been informed of or educated on the new policy. The RN maintains he was still following the old scanning policy because of her lack of awareness that there was a new policy.
The RN maintains that although she labeled the milk syringe incorrectly, the correct milk was given to the patient. Subsequent laboratory testing confirmed the patient was not harmed.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse defense lawyer in Houston had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse defense lawyer in Houston for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
