Facing any allegations may compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at a hospital in Austin, Texas and had been in that position for four (4) months.
On or about April 10, 2018, while the RN was employed as a Licensed Vocational Nurse at the said hospital and scheduled to provide care to a patient from 0700 to 1700, the RN left the patient’s home before her shift was over and failed to notify her supervisor. The RN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to risk of harm in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patient not getting the care needed.
On or about April 10, 2018, the RN falsely documented providing care and administering medications to the patient during hours that she was not physically present at the patient’s home. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate 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.
In response, the RN admits she received an emergency phone call from her child’s daycare at 1545. She states she told the patient’s mother the situation and told her she needed to leave. The RN states before she left, she called Pediatric Home Healthcare and spoke to someone, telling that she had to leave work and pick up a sick child. The RN admits that she never got a chance to document on the tablet, instead she just wrote her information on scratch paper so she could do it later. Due to the emergency phone call, the RN admits she didn’t get a chance to submit her dowsheet because she ended up leaving.
The Texas Board of Nursing summoned the LVN. However, there was defense from her side as she failed to hire a nurse attorney. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, only if she decided to do so.
