Meticulous attention to detail is paramount, especially when it comes to administering medications through intravenous routes. Patients rely on the expertise and precision of healthcare professionals to ensure their safety during treatments. However, instances where proper protocols are not followed can have serious consequences, potentially compromising patient well-being. In such complex situations, the intervention of a nurse attorney can provide invaluable support. If regulatory actions are warranted, the nurse attorney can guide the RN through the process, ensuring compliance and protecting their professional interests.

At the time of the initial incident, RN was employed as an Infusion Nurse at a hospital in Longview, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.

On or about November 13, 2021, through November 27, 2021, while employed as an Infusion Nurse at a hospital in Longview, Texas, RN inappropriately administered Zemaira intravenously to a patient three times, without using an in-line filter as required. Additionally, when the patient complained of vision changes after the third infusion on November 27, 2021, RN failed to document notification of the physician and pharmacist of the adverse event and failed to document the patient’s response in the medical record. RN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record and exposed the patient to a risk of harm from particulates remaining in the medication after incorrect manner of administration.

The above actions constitute grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13) Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C)&(1)(M) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12 (1)(A),(1)(B)&(1)(C).

However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case. Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a Texas nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing disciplined the RN’s license.
