Having to face accusations was never easy for every RNs and LVNs. And every violation committed by nurses has its corresponding consequence. But hiring a nurse attorney to help you get through the consequences of your actions is indeed the best thing to do.
An incident happened to an RN on or about October 12, 2019, while employed at a hospital in Laredo, Texas, the RN inaccurately documented the administration of physician-ordered 75 units of NPH insulin to a patient. She only administered 7 units and was awaiting additional insulin from the pharmacy; however, she failed to administer the remaining insulin on delivery and failed to report the outstanding dosage to the on-coming nurse. The RN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient from potentially adverse complications of untreated blood glucose levels.
In response to the incident, the RN states that she did not document that only a partial dose was administered to the patient and also states she forgot to correct her medication administration documentation.
As a result of the incident, the RN was disciplined by the Texas Board of Nursing. However, the RN failed to hire a nurse lawyer for defense against the accusation of inaccurate documentation. If only the RN had hired a skilled and experienced nurse attorney, the result of the case would have yielded a different outcome and might be a good outcome. Hiring a nurse attorney can is the best way to fight or deal with any accusation cases.
