False accusations are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations against them can be denied by the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in Texas failed to do so.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a Medical Center in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for eleven (11) months.
Facing any allegations may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you with the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
On or about June 22, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse and assigned to the NICU, the RN inappropriately obtained a blood glucose lab specimen from the finger of the infant patient instead of the heel. The RN’s conduct was a violation of facility policy and exposed the patient to the risk of harm from adverse complications of lancet injury; including, possible nerve or bone damage to the finger.
An incident happened on or about October 13, 2019, and October 26, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN removed the Patient from a cardiac-apnea monitor without a valid physician order and without utilizing a portable monitor. The RN then transported the infant outside of the room and into the hallway without utilizing a proper bassinet; instead, the RN carried the infant in her arms. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from potentially adverse complications of undetected and untreated cardiac bradycardia and apnea.
On or about November 6, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse with the UTSouthwestern Medical Center, Dallas, Texas, and assigned to the NICU, the RN bottle-fed a patient who was on vapotherm treatment for respiratory support, without a valid provider order. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient. Failure to administer feedings as ordered by the physician could have resulted in the non-efficacious treatment of the patient’s respiratory distress.
In response to the incident, the RN states that the infant’s left heel was injured from numerous prior glucose checks and the right heel was taped to protect a saline lock; the RN further states the provider was notified. Additionally, the RN states that new leads had to be obtained from the hallway and that the infant was carried for calming measures. And that the RN states the infant continually removed the nasal cannula prongs and vital signs were stable on room air. The RN also states the infant tolerated the slow nipple feeding with no signs of respiratory distress.
The following incident and defense against the case caused the Texas Board of Nursing to place the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
