An instance wherein an example of this issue was charged against a RN happened on or about January 23, 2017 when the RN was assigned as a Private Duty Nurse in Klein. During the time of the incident, she was observed continuously using her cell phone and not attending to special needs of a student while on the bus with another student.
Additionally, she was also observed making inappropriate statements regarding the student, and spanking the student while he was trying to climb steps onto the bus. Further, she failed to clean the student prior to boarding the bus after the student had defecated. Subsequently, the student was transported home with feces in his diaper.
The RN’s conduct not only exposed the student to risk of harm from insufficient monitoring of his medical conditions, but also exposed the student to risk of emotional harm and risk of harm from falling into the bus when using physical prompting to push the student onto the bus.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN admits using her cell phone because she uses her cell phone to entertain the student and play music. She states she did not spank the student, but rather provided physical prompts to board the bus. The RN admits the student had a bowel movement prior to boarding the bus, but the classroom with all the supplies was too far from where students were boarding the bus, and would have been too emotionally difficult for the student.
The allegations filed on the RN were all denied by her. However, she failed to hire an experienced nurse attorney to defend her.
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 RN. 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.
