Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney.
On or about October 21, 2016, through October 25, 2016, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a rehabilitation center in Houston, the RN failed to document in the medical record that a patient-reported having bloody stools. The RN’s conducted was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers did not have complete information on which to base their decisions for subsequent care.
The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.
During the hearing, the RN states she was angry that she could not see a provider immediately, refused to go into a holding cell, refused a triage assessment, stormed down the hall cursing, and returned to her unit. The RN denies telling her to wait for an appointment but states she asked her to wait for a provider to be available.
However, the RN without the help of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
