If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit incomplete medical records.
One such incident happened to an RN on or about April 1, 2007, through April 2, 2007, while she was employed in a medical facility in Temple. During the said date, the RN failed to document an assessment in the medical record of a patient, regarding a change of condition possible injury to the resident’s right foot.
The RN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate information on which to base their care decisions.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. In response to the incident, the RN states “I realize I should have documented better on this in my nurse’s notes and I would have if there were any signs/symptoms of distress, temperature, or any change of behavior.”
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license. The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
