Nurses facing cases they never committed or wish to deny should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any criminal charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the RN from Austin should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On or about November 30, 2016, through December 1, 2016, while employed as a Staff Nurse, the RN failed to timely administer Humulin N20 as ordered every 12 hours at 8 pm to a patient when she incorrectly administered Humulin N 20 units at 6:25 am that was ordered at 8 am; incorrectly administered Humulin N 20 units at 9:09 pm when it was ordered at 8 pm; and incorrectly administered Humulin N 20 units at 6:30 am when it was ordered at 8 am.
Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered by the physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment of their diabetes.
On or about December 1, 2016, the RN failed to sign the CSAR count as the oncoming nurse. Her conduct created an incomplete Controlled Substance medication record for the shift.
The RN was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. But because she failed to attend the hearing or even a nurse attorney to defend her, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, more so if she has proper defense to her case.
