Once a complaint from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is filed, that case becomes public and available for the world to see. When this happens, this makes it very difficult to get a job for nurses. An experienced nurse attorney knows how to avoid these pitfalls. This incident that an RN committed in 2019, was one of those examples.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital facility in Tyler, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately less than one (1) month.
On or about February 4, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to complete a skilled nursing visit for a patient in which wound care was to be performed and failed to notify the appropriate supervisor that the visit was not completed. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failing to complete skilled nursing visits as ordered by a physician could have resulted in the patients not receiving the care they needed.
In response to the incident, the RN states that she submitted all corresponding notes electronically on her patients and that she resigned on February 4, 2019, therefore she should not have been assigned to Patient Number 12819. The RN states that she would not and did not deliberately fail to perform a skilled nursing visit or submit notes for any patient.
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 could have sought assistance from a good nurse attorney to provide clarifications for the case.
A nurse attorney is someone who represents nursing professionals in court. They are also the ones who react and make decisions quickly in demanding conditions.
