Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire a nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs and LVNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them. This RN from Navasota, Texas happens to be one of them.
At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Family Nurse Practitioner in a medical facility in Navasota, Texas and had been in that position for one (1) year and ten (10) months.
On or about September 7, 2017, while employed as a Family Nurse Practitioner and providing nursing services to patients, the RN failed to appropriately intervene when nursing staff reported to her that a patient presented to the clinic with chest pain. The patient’s pain resolved slowly after multiple doses of nitroglycerin, and his EKG results were abnormal.
The RN ordered Pepto Bismol for the patient and he was sent back to his housing area. Subsequently, the patient was found unresponsive in his dorm on September 13, 2017; resuscitation efforts were unsuccessful and he was declared deceased, due to myocardial infarction. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from a delay in treatment and escalation of care.
The RN was given the chance to defend herself and denied all the accusations and cases filed against her. However, without enough evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was discipline. Thus, the Texas Board of Nursing subjected her license for revocation.
