Every person who wants to become a professional LVN or RN in the state of Texas needs to go through several processes. This is the main reason why you should be careful when doing your job, or else, complaints might be filed against you. Without the help of a nurse attorney, you might get suspended by the Texas Board of Nursing.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Fort Hood, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) months.
On or about August 25, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN asked a patient care technician assigned to a Hemodialysis Patient to change a treatment note since the RN believed said note made the patient appear to be non-compliant with the dialysis treatment; when the patient care technician refused to amend the note, the RN improperly deleted it. The RN’s comment created a false medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
On or about August 28, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to document a plan of care for a Patient. The RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record that was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In response to the incident, the RN states she only documented detailed nursing notes on care provided to the patient. The RN further states the clinic is guilty of falsifying and manipulating medical records. In addition, the RN states the care plan was not completed on time and also states the physician was aware. The RN further states the physician-assisted with completing the care plan.
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN sufficient time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right nurse attorney to handle her case.
