Allegations, accusations, and complaints at work are serious cases, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, there are some nurses who would think that they are guilty of the violations and that there is no way to get out of such a mess 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, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Laredo, Texas, and had been in that position for two (2) years and nine (9) months.
On or about April 13, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN engaged in unprofessional conduct in that she posted a screenshot of a patient’s medical record on a social media platform without the patient’s consent. The RN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to a risk of harm from the disclosure of her confidential medical information without her written authorization.
In regards to the incident, the RN states she posted an image on her Facebook account on April 13, 2018, which was meant to be a positive reflection of a team that she enjoyed working with. The RN states there were no patient identifiers in her post. The RN further states she deleted the post soon after as she decided she should have just stated that she missed working with these people. The RN states she uses her Facebook solely for personal reasons as this is no place for professional postings, reflections, or anything of that nature.
As a result, the RN is subjected and will face disciplinary actions due to her misconduct from the Texas Board of Nursing. However, she failed to hire an experienced nurse attorney for proper assistance, causing her to undergo such procedures.
