On or about September 19, 2007, while employed as a Staff Nurse in a university hospital in Galveston, the RN failed to assess a patient after the patient reportedly experienced a seizure.

On or about September 19, 2007, the RN failed to document in the medical record that it had been reported to her that the patient had experienced a seizure. Her conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record which was likely to cause injury to the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In addition, the RN failed to notify the physician that it had been reported to her that the patient had experienced a seizure. Her conduct deprived the physician of essential information on which to base further timely medical interventions which may have been required to stabilize the patient’s condition.
During the hearing, the RN states, she was called to check on the patient who had just had a seizure according to the mother who was in the room. She states the patient was sitting on the floor beside the bed awake, alert, and showing no signs of post-seizure activity. During an earlier visit, she states the patient had reported that she sits or lays on the floor when she feels a seizure coming on and the RN’s questions were focused on determining if the patient had fallen or voluntarily sat down.
At that time, the RN states, the mother of the patient told the RN to get out of the room. She states she did as the mother requested and informed the Charge Nurse. The RN states she was informed during shift report that the medical team was not to be called for focal seizures, but only for changes in condition or seizures with loss of consciousness.
Because of the lack of an experienced nurse attorney to defend her side, the Board of Nursing placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
