It is very important that patients will receive the proper care they need during their stay at the hospital for their treatment. It will never be good for patients if they are receiving less than enough care that it should be. However, there are nurses that tend to face the results of their actions without thinking that a nurse attorney is always reliable for matters such as these.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Round Rock, Texas, and had been in that position for three months.
On or about April 3, 2020, the RN failed to give a report before leaving the facility during his shift. The RN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to risk of harm in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patient not getting the care needed.
On or about April 3, 2020, through April 4, 2020, the RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that he exhibited signs of impaired behavior, including, but, not limited to: smelling strongly of alcohol, inability to stand without holding himself up, staggering walk, slurred speech, falling asleep during conversations, inability to write, inability to provide a drug screen specimen, and needing a wheelchair to be moved from the out-patient lab area to the Emergency Department, where he slept for approximately eight (8) hours. In addition, when asked by the House Supervisor what he had consumed, the RN reported alcohol. The RN’s condition could have affected his ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patient’s conditions, and could have affected his ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
A good nurse attorney is always the best line of defense for these cases. This is the reason why Nurse Attorney Yong J. An is dedicated to helping those nurses in need to settle their cases.
