It’s best to seek the help of a Garland nurse attorney when facing different complaints and allegations. However, some nurses tend to face these results alone instead without thinking that a nurse attorney by his/her side is always reliable for matters such as these.
At the time of the incident, he was employed as an RN with a nursing home care provider in Garland, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) years and two (2) months.
On or about January 27, 2020, while employed as an RN with a nursing home care provider in Garland, Texas, LVN inappropriately delegated the administration of a respiratory medication, Duoneb, for a patient to an unlicensed nurse assistant. RN prepared the Duoneb nebulizer treatment when he was not in the resident’s room, and then he handed the medication to the nurse assistant with instructions to administer the patient’s nebulizer medication. Subsequently, after attempting to administer the medication, the nurse assistant exited the room, the resident’s family discovered fluid on the floor and in the tubing for the nasal cannula, but no medication in the nebulizer chamber. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from adverse effects of medications administered improperly.
In response, RN reports a family member requested he give the patient a duoneb treatment that the family member would watch. A nursing assistant was going to the same room, so RN asked the assistant to give the duoneb treatment to the family member.
The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.463(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(S)&(2)(B) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(D)&(4).
A case was ultimately filed against him before the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). The said allegation was fatal to the RN’s capability to perform the essential functions and duties. Sad to say, the nursing defense attorney who handled his case was not able to properly defend his interests and rights before the Board. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) found him guilty of the offense alleged in the complaint and decided to place his RN license under disciplinary action.
