A Nurse can face a lot of accusations, allegation cases, or complaints cases and then face the Texas Board of Nursing to formally follow procedures. But if a nurse is experiencing such a problem, a nurse attorney can be their line of defense that can assist them in dealing the cases they are facing.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Irving, Texas, and had been in that position for six (6) months.
On or about April 2, 2018, the RN inappropriately increased the Milrinone drip of a Patient from .025mcg/kg/min, to a dose of.05mcg/kg/min, without a physician’s order or without first consulting with the physician. Additionally, the RN inaccurately documented that he titrated the patient’s drip dose to Smcg/kg/min instead of .05mcg/kg/min. The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and could have exposed the patient to injury, in that the administration of Milrinone in excess dosage of physician order, could result in the patient suffering an adverse reaction.
In response, the RN states that he read the order for Milrinone as titratable. The RN states after titrating the Milrinone, he notified the primary/physician responsible for the patient’s care. Although the patient’s blood pressure remained low and a rapid response team was called, there was ultimately no harm to the patient. The RN states he views his experience and the incident as a chance to reflect upon his practice and fully understands it is his responsibility as a nurse to be knowledgeable regarding the medications he is administering.
As a result of the above-mentioned incident, the LVN is facing disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing. He failed to hire a nurse attorney to help him win the case. Avoid a similar thing happening on your end. Make sure that you find the right nurse attorney in case a complaint will be filed against you before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON).
