The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. An RN in Texas needs to follow several rules and regulations to prevent the revocation of her RN license. In the past, several cases were filed against different nurses for misconduct and gross negligence which may have put their RN’s license in danger. Therefore, nurses need a Bryan nurse attorney to defend their case.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a medical facility in Bryan, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) years and eleven (11) months.
On or about May 30, 2020, while employed as an RN at a medical facility in Bryan, Texas, RN withdrew a 1mg/ml vial of Hydromorphone from the Omnicell medication dispensing system for a patient at 1213 and 1616, without a documented indication of pain. Additionally, RN failed to perform and/or document that she performed pain assessments for the aforementioned patient for the duration of her shift. RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the patient to a risk of harm from ineffective pain management.
In response, RN states she assessed the patient’s pain, but admits she got behind on her charting and forgot to document it.
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) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(10)(C)&(11)(B).
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.
