On or about October 2, 2012, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in KcKinney, the RN administered 4 mg of Morphine to a patient, when the patient was ordered to receive 2 mg of Morphine. The RN then falsely documented she administered 2mg of Morphine to the patient in the patient’s Medication Administration Records.

The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient, in that the administration of Morphine in excess dosage of the physician’s order could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions including but not limited to cardiac arrest and respiratory depression.

Furthermore, her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers did not have accurate information on which to base their decisions for further care.

On or about October 2, 2012, the RN misappropriated Morphine belonging to the facility and patients thereof, or failed to take the precautions to prevent such misappropriation. Her conduct was likely to defraud the facility and patients of the cost of medications, and is a violation of Chapter 481 of the Texas Health and Safety Code (Controlled Substances Act).

Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to hear her side. The RN admitted that she erroneously pulled and gave the patient 4 mg of Morphine.

However, the lack of an experienced nurse attorney to help her led to the decision of Texas Board of Nursing to discipline and suspend the RN.

The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the LVN. So if you ever encounter such an issue, it’s best to contact Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 for a confidential consultation.
