In Texas, the government has created a special agency that has the jurisdiction to handle controversies and cases involving the nursing profession. Every RN subjected to a disciplinary proceeding or administrative case before the Texas Board of Nursing is given an opportunity to be heard and defense himself from all accusations. This every RN with a pending case before the Board is to encourage hiring San Antonio RN lawyers.
Unfortunately, there are some nurses who fail to find San Antonio RN lawyers to handle their cases. As a result, most of them would be adjudged liable for the complaints. This usually leads to the revocation of professional nursing license. This is what happened to a RN in San Antonio, Texas for series of cases filed against her.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed in a healthcare center in San Antonio and had been in that position for for eleven months.
On or about February 8, 2007, the RN allegedly administered 40 units of Novolin 70/30 to a patient without first correctly identifying the patient. Consequently, insulin was administered to the incorrect patient and the patient was ordered to the emergency room by the physician for administration of intravenous dextrose and monitoring of blood glucose levels, and was subsequently admitted to the hospital.
The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the patient was exposed to the effects of hypoglycemia, including possible demise.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to give her a fair chance to defend her case. She was given the chance to defend herself at the Board.In response to the incident, the RN admits and states that she mistakenly identified the wrong patient because the patients were sitting in different locations in the dining room and because there was a new staff member at the facility who was not familiar with the different patients.
Unfortunately, she was found her guilty for the complaint against her and her license was suspended. She lost the case simply because the RN failed to find effective San Antonio RN lawyers.
