There are instances where a nurse attorney can be very useful whenever an RN or an LVN faced criminal charges, complaints, or any accusations. Patients tend to file complaints immediately whenever they experience poorly regarding patient care during treatment. But any RN or LVN can defend themselves when such a thing happens.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility, in Cedar Park, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately seven (7) years and six (6) months.
On or about September 16, 2017, while employed as a Staff Nurse, the RN left the nursing home for forty-five (45) minutes, abandoning several patients who required 24-hour, skilled nursing pre. Additionally, the RN failed to notify the Charge Nurse, facility, or appropriate caregiver(s) of her leaving her nursing assignment at the nursing home. The RN’s conduct exposed the residents unnecessarily to the risk of harm in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patients not getting the care needed.
In response to the incident, the RN states that she walked down the hall to use another bathroom and was gone for twenty minutes. The RN states that she did inform one staff member, but did not inform the staff working beside her because she hurried to the bathroom. The RN also states that she apologized to that staff member and explained what happened when she returned to the unit.
As a result, of the RN’s conduct, the RN will be facing disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing and may receive further sanctions. The evidence received is sufficient to prove that there is a violation(s) and is cause pursuant to Section 301.452(b)(10) & (13).
