The assistance of a nurse attorney is valuable if you’re facing a case before the Texas Board of Nursing. Your defense can be strengthened further if you’re going to face the Board, even if your case has multiple instances of failure to follow a procedure. There are times where mistakes at work could be inevitable, which is why a nurse attorney can assure full assistance over such errors. Disciplinary actions could have been thought about by the Texas Board of Nursing if this particular RN from Houston, Texas hired a nurse attorney over her case.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a Hospital in Austin, Texas, and had been in that position for (3) years.
It was on or about March 18, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN incorrectly documented the administration of Lisinopril medication as ordered by a physician. The RN’s conduct could have injured the patient in that failure to administer medication as ordered by a physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment and created an inaccurate medical record.
In response to the incident, the RN admits she failed to administer Lisinopril according to orders and that she falsely documented in the patient’s chart that she had administered the medication.
As a result of the RN’s misconduct, she will be facing disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) which is caused pursuant to Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13) of the Texas Occupations Code. The RN should have hired a nurse attorney for instances such as this.
So if you’re summoned by the Board for a hearing against your case if you ever did a minor mistake at work, it’s best to consult a nurse attorney first.
