It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing any accusations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
This is what happened to a certain RN in Brownwood, Texas. During the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed in a medical center in Brownwood and had been in the position for two years.
On or about October 21, 2017, while employed in a healthcare facility in Brownwood, the RN failed to accurately document and failed to ensure accurate documentation of vital signs, blood oxygen levels, the interventions performed and the effectiveness of interventions when a patient experienced respiratory distress.
The RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN the chance to defend herself. In response to the complaint, the RN states the event was documented on the SBAR Communication Form after the patient was transported to hospital by Emergency Medical Services (EMS).
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidence was brought up to her. Therefore, the Board placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
