Nurses are always at risk for accusations of medical malpractice or negligence. If someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Beaumont, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were charged with negligence and failed to hire an effective nurse attorney.
At the time of the incident, she was employed as an RN with a pediatric home healthcare services provider in Beaumont, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) months.
On or about September 7, 2020, through September 8, 2020, while employed as an RN with a pediatric home healthcare services provider in Beaumont, Texas, and providing care for a patient, a nine-year-old tracheostomy dependent patient, RN failed to report vital signs persistently outside normal parameters to the physician. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from lack of medical treatment for vital signs out of normal range.
In response, RN reports the vital signs of the patient, such as heart rate, would increase due to administration of nebulizer treatments that included Albuterol. RN reports on September 8, 2020, her second and last day working with the patient, his documented vital signs improved.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D),(1)(M),(1)(P)&(3)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12.(1)(A),(1)(B)&(4).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
