Nurses are always at risk for accusations of medical malpractice or negligence. If someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Amarillo, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were charged with negligence and failed to hire an effective nurse attorney.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Amarillo, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month
An incident happened on or about April 21, 2018, through April 22, 2018, while employed, and assigned in the hospital, the RN failed to notify the physician, as required by the physician’s order, when the patient’s systolic blood pressure remained below 90 for the entirety of her shift. Additionally, an RN failed to document her assessments of the patient and her interaction with the patient’s family and members of the health care team.
In response to the incident, the RN states she notified the charge nurse throughout the entire shift about the patient’s blood pressure readings, and the patient was asymptomatic. The RN states that she notified the physician at 0600.
However, after an investigation and with enough evidence to prove the RN’s misconduct, the RN has lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license under disciplinary action.
Do not be stressed or anxious if you find yourself in a similar situation as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case.
