Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them.
On or about January 13, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Plano, the RN failed to place a patient on a bedside monitor when she presented to the Emergency Department with symptoms including high blood glucose, syncope, and temporary confusion.
In addition, the RN failed to perform an electrocardiogram (EKG) as ordered by the physician in 1549. At approximately 1700, the patient became unresponsive and had pulseless electrical activity (PEA) requiring cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that lack of information from monitoring equipment and EKG results deprived the physician of the opportunity to institute timely medical interventions.
The RN was given the chance to defend herself and denied all the accusations and cases filed against her. However, without enough evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was discipline. Thus, the Texas Board of Nursing subjected her license for revocation.
The RN denied the allegations against her. However, without a skilled nurse attorney to defend her, she lost her case.
Because of this, the RN has been subjected to discipline.
