Allegations while at work could be a serious case, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, there are some nurses who thought they were guilty of the charges and failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it was the doom for their license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
At the time of the incident, the LVN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse in Austin, Texas, and had been in that position for four (4) years and one (1) month.
It was on or about December 5, 2020, while employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse, the LVN failed to clarify provider orders for both scheduled and as-needed albuterol treatment for ventilator-dependent Patient, additionally, the said LVN failed to accurately document the scheduled albuterol treatment on the Medication Administration Record (MAR) for the upcoming week. The LVN’s conduct created an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered by the physician could have resulted in the non-efficacious treatment of the patient’s respiratory status.
As a result of the incident, the said LVN mentioned that she did not knowingly fail to enter the provider orders on the new MAR for the upcoming week. The LVN also stated that all medications that were already listed on the current MAR were precisely transferred to the new MAR.
Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license to disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
