A San Antonio nurse attorney is someone who represents medical professionals in court. They are also the ones who react and make decisions quickly on demanding conditions.

An RN from San Antonio is just one of the many RNs who failed to properly represent herself before the Texas Board of Nursing. During the initial time of the incident, the RN was employed in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in that position for two years already.

On or about January 29, 2018, through January 30, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse in San Antonio, the RN lacked the fitness to practice nursing in that she exhibited signs of impaired behavior while on duty, to include: defecating on herself, unsteady gait, and slurred speech. Her condition could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms or changes in patients’ conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.

On or about January 29, 2018, through January 30, 2018, the RN failed to document Clean Intermittent Catheterization procedures and care provided to a patient after 2230 during her shift. Her conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have complete information on which to base their care decisions.

On or about November 4, 2019, the RN falsely documented in the patient’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) that she administered 5mls of MCT oil at 0000 and 5mls of MCT oil at 0400 when in fact she administered 10mls of MCT oil at once. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record and failure to administer medications as ordered by a physician could have resulted in nonefficacious treatment.

Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing summoned the RN to hear her side of the story. However, without valid reason and defense to properly explain the RN’s side, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing. Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license to disciplinary action.

The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a San Antonio nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.

If you are summoned to appear before a licensing board regarding a disciplinary incident, you will need an experienced nurse attorney who knows how to handle nurse cases.
