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 San Antonio failed to do so.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that position for eleven (11) months.
On or about August 3, 2018 through May 22, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN falsely documented the hours of her visits and skilled nursing notes in the medical records of the Patient in that she clocked in and documented assessments while not in the home. The RN’s conduct created inaccurate medical records and was likely to defraud and deceive the. facility of money paid to the Respondent for hours not actually worked. In addition, the RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation for further care.
On or about May 26, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse and after she had been removed from the assignment to a Patient, the RN engaged in unprofessional conduct in that she sent a harassing text message to the mother of the Patient. The RN’s conduct may have caused delayed distress for the patient or the patient’s caregiver, which may not be recognized or felt by the patient or patient’s caregiver until barn full consequences occur.
In response, the RN denies falsifying documentation. The RN admits to sending a text message to the patient’s mother after being removed from the case as she felt betrayed and wanted to discuss the issues. The RN stated she apologized for her behavior.
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 would have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
