At the time of the incident, she was employed as a Labor & Delivery Nurse at a medical facility in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that position for six (6) years and two (2) months.
On or about June 7, 2020, while employed as a Labor & Delivery Nurse at a medical facility in Mesquite, Texas, RN incorrectly administered intravenous (IV) Toradol to the patient approximately forty (40) minutes after her cesarean section delivery, contrary to the physician’s orders. RN’s conduct could have exposed the patient to a risk of harm from failing to timely administer medications.
In response to the above incident, RN states that when Toradol was administered, the patient met the requirements for being stable, and it was given in line with what RN and all the nurses on the unit have done for the last five years.
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) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(4).
However, without enough evidence to prove she’s not guilty, the RN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license under disciplinary action.
