Cases involving medical errors are something that a Cypress nurse license attorney could be of great help for some nurses. However, some nurses tend to forget this fact because they really felt like they should be responsible even if they never intended to commit such an error. R150174N9410
On or about October 25, 2013, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a hospital in Cypress, the RN withdrew Insulin from a single patient using Insulin pen and administered the Insulin that she obtained to other patients. Her conduct was likely to injure patients from blood borne infections.
This issue was filed as a complaint and sent to the Texas Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction in all cases that may affect the status of an RN or LVN’s license in the future. But they advise nurses to attend a hearing first before placing the sentence, which the RN attended for her career’s security.
During the hearing, the RN states she honestly when the CNO asked if she had ever drawn Insulin from a patient’s insulin pen and then administered it to a different patient. The RN states there was no malice or bad intent and that she has always provided the best of care to her patients. She states she realizes that she has done something that placed her patients at risk of harm.
As a result, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to disciplinary action. It’s too bad that she failed to hire a Cypress nurse license attorney for assistance, knowing that she had every reason to defend herself in the first place. Her defense would have gotten better if she actually sought legal consultation from a Texas nurse attorney as well.
So if you’re facing a complaint from the Board, it’s best to seek legal advice first. Cypress Nurse License Attorney Yong J.
