Accusations are stressful issues for an RN or LVN, except when a Fort Worth nurse attorney assists you against the case. The Texas Board of Nurses is responsible for all hearings against RNs and LVNs undergoing a case that may revoke suspend or only discipline their license. Take note that a nurse attorney in Fort Worth can also defend a nurse’s license against accusations.
On or about March 29, 2017, through March 30, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in Fort Worth, the RN withdrew Hydromorphone, Lorazepam, Zolpidem, and Norco from the medication dispensing system for patients and failed to document or completely and accurately document the administration of the medications in the patients medication administration records.
The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patients which could result in an overdose.
Additionally, her conduct placed the hospital in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
In response, the RN states she takes full responsibility for her actions. She states she has no excuse for her behavior and knows it was wrong. The RN stated the patient was asleep so she administered the medication to another patient across the hall who had been asking for their pain medication. She states one thing is certain, she does not and did not take any drugs from the hospital.
However, without the proper help from a good defense nurse attorney, the RN lost the case and she was disciplined and suspended.
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
