An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a medical facility in Pearland, Texas, and had been in that position for twelve (12) years.
On or about August 22, 2020, while employed as an RN at a medical facility in Pearland, Texas, RN inappropriately obtained a nurse’s signature as a witness on a patient consent without confirming the individual’s identity and signature for accuracy. RN’s conduct was inappropriate and created an inaccurate medical record.
In response, RN states the floor nurse confirms she obtained all consents but missed signing the blood consent form. RN states there was no harm to the patient nor was there a potential for harm since the consent forms had been presented by the physician and the floor nurse had gone over all the forms with the patient. RN became very fearful of being blamed solely for the delay in surgery and admitted that it was a bad judgment allowing the other nurse to write the floor nurse’s name. RN states she wanted to take accountability for what happened and states there is no way she was going to write that she did something she did not do. RN also states she has an outstanding nursing record and nursing is her life. RN explains that she has learned from this experience and did not know how to recognize a toxic environment. RN states she allowed toxic individuals to push her into using poor judgement.
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)(B) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12.(1)(B) & (1)(C).
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.
