The work that nurses do is often unappreciated. And sometimes, a bit of negligence could lead to a more serious scenario such as filing a suit against them. If this happens to an RN, they should know how to protect and defend themselves. If not properly defended by a Laredo nurse attorney, their license could even be suspended or revoked.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Laredo, Texas, and had been in that position for ten (10) months.
On or about February 1, 2019, the RN failed to give a nursing report to a licensed person when a Patient was transferred via air ambulance to another facility. Instead, the RN gave a report to a technician at the receiving hospital after giving a report to the RN and EMT on the air ambulance. The RN’s conduct could have deprived the receiving facility’s licensed staff of vital information needed to provide appropriate care to the patient with an acute health condition.
In response, the RN states that when he called the receiving hospital he was transferred to the charge nurse’s cell phone, and assumed he was speaking to the charge nurse when she told him she could take his report. After giving his report, the RN requested the name and position of the person he gave the report to so he could document it, and at that time the person informed him she was a tech and that nobody else was available to take a report. The RN also gave a nursing report to the RN and EMT on the air ambulance who gave a report to the RN at the receiving hospital, and the physician also gave a report to the receiving physician.
The RN is subject to disciplinary sanction because of his misconduct. He failed to hire a Laredo nurse attorney to help him win the case. Avoid a similar thing happening on your end. Make sure that you find the right Laredo nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
