If someone filed an accusation against you, it 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 at a hospital in Brownsville, Texas, and had been in that position for ten (10) years and ten (10) months.
On or about January 3, 2019, through January 4, 2019, the RN failed to assess any residents for the duration of her eight (8) hours shift. The RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the residents to a risk of harm from undetected complications or changes in condition.
On or about January 3, 2019, the RN also failed to assess hospice Patient VC, for the duration of her eight (8) hour shift. The patient was assessed by the oncoming shift nurse and found to have elevated blood pressure, elevated pulse, and low oxygen saturation with her nasal cannula hanging off. The RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the resident to a risk of harm from complications associated with her change in condition.
On or about January 3, 2019, the RN falsely documented on two (2) Nursing Progress Notes that she administered Methadone, assessed the respiratory status, repositioned, and performed an “in and out” catheterization for Patient VC. The RN’s conduct was deceptive, created an inaccurate medical record, and was likely to injure the resident in that subsequent caregivers would rely on her documentation to base their decisions for further care.
In response, the RN admits she did not visually check the patient. The RN states that the nurses depend on the DSPs (direct support persons) to tell them about any changes in the patients’ conditions and nobody ever told her of any issues the patient might be having.
Regardless of the explanations provided by the RN, they still placed her RN license into disciplinary action as the Texas Board of Nursing has decided. If a nurse attorney was present during the case, a better defense could have been provided to the Board. That’s why you should hire Nurse Attorney Yong J.
