A Nurse can face a lot of accusations, allegation cases, or complaints cases and they will face the Texas Board of Nursing to formally follow procedures. However, if a nurse is experiencing such circumstances, a nurse attorney can be their defense and can assist them in dealing with the cases they are facing.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a children’s hospital in Pharr, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and five (5) months.
On or about April 17, 2020, while employed as an RN at a children’s hospital in Pharr, Texas, RN failed to correctly administer medication to a patient in that RN administered normal saline instead of dextrose 5% normal saline, as ordered. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In response to the above incident, RN states that because there is usually a delay on the part of the pharmacy when sending intravenous fluids with additives, she administered normal saline to keep the vein open.
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)(C),(1)(D),(1)(M)&(3)(A) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(4).
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side, but the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case and without proper defense, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to place her RN license under disciplinary action.
