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 Dallas nurse attorney. An RN from Dallas, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who were charged with negligence and failed to hire an effective Dallas nurse attorney.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as a Nurse Anesthetist at a medical facility in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and seven (7) months.
On or about April 7, 2020, while employed as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) at a medical facility in Dallas, Texas, and providing anesthesia care for a patient, RN was accused of the following:
1. RN failed to appropriately assess the patient prior to leaving the procedure area causing the patient to require a jaw thrust maneuver to maintain an airway while being transported to the post-anesthesia care unit (PACU). Upon arrival at the PACU, the RN left the patient, and the PACU nurse initiated a code. Although the RN returned to the PACU and provided chest compressions, an anesthesiologist responding to the code intubated the patient.
2. RN failed to document the patient’s tolerance of the procedure, use of jaw thrust, and justification for the anesthetic medications used. RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record.
In response to the above incidents, RN denies the charges.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D)&(1)(M) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B)&(4).
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing found her guilty of her deeds. Her RN license was subjected to disciplinary action. She did not hire a skilled Dallas nurse attorney to fully defend her case which led to this decision by the Texas Board of Nursing.
