A skilled and knowledgeable nurse attorney can provide utmost assistance over cases that you may deny committing. However, a lack of a nurse attorney could subject you and your license to any possible sanction depending on the severity of your misconduct.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Grand Prairie, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and eight (8) months.
On or about December 14, 2017, through January 7, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse, and in the role of Charge Nurse, the said RN failed to accurately and/or completely document the administration of medications and their associated wastage for several patients on her unit, for which she pulled the medications from the facility’s medication dispensing system and administered the medications to the patients in an effort to assist the patients’ assigned bedside nurses.
In response, the RN stated as the charge nurse she was responsible for addressing the patient’s issues immediately. According to the RN, when the primary nurse was busy she administered medications and informed the primary nurse of her actions. It was mentioned by the RN that the nurse assigned to the patient was responsible for documenting the medication.
Therefore, as a result, the Texas Board of Nursing then decided to subject the RN and her license to disciplinary actions. The said discipline shall ensure the safety of the patient, along with a better future for the RN’s career. However, she should have contacted a nurse attorney in order to receive assistance regarding the case, especially if the RN sincerely thinks of it as an accusation.
