It’s best to seek the help of a San Antonio nurse lawyer when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
On or about May 13, 2018 while employed as a Registered Nurse in a university hospital in San Antonio, the RN allegedly failed to document reassessment of a patient’s vital signs after the nurse technician documented an elevated blood pressure reading of 172/83.
In addition, the RN failed to notify the charge nurse and/or the patient’s provider of elevated blood pressure readings. Her conduct could have injured the patient from clinical care decisions based on incomplete assessment information.
In response to the incident, the RN states that she personally rechecked the patient’s blood pressure after the Patient Care Tech told her it was elevated. Her result was 150/80, so she uploaded the vital signs via the portable machine. Later, she realized the blood pressure reading had not uploaded so she entered a note in the computer stating such and notified the Charge Nurse.
In addition, the RN states she reported this to the oncoming nurse and kept personal account as to patient care concerns.
However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself. Therefore, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead.
