Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving falsification of documents, your license could be put in danger if not defended by an Edinburg nurse attorney. An RN from Edinburg, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were found to be negligent while on duty.
On or about November 1, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Edinburg, the RN allegedly failed to completely and accurately document events after a patient presented to the clinic with a suspected allergic reaction; including, vital signs, oxygen saturation, parental communications, nursing assessment and reassessment and the patient’s response to nursing interventions. Her conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In response to the incident, the RN states, on arrival at the clinic, the patient’s breath sounds were clear with no wheezing, saturations were normal, and there were no signs of either shortness of breath, labored breathing, swelling, or hives. She further states she called EMS over the objections of the patient’s parent.
However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney in Edinburg to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
