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.
One such incident happened to an RN in Pollok on or about September 21, 2017. During the time of the incident she was currently employed as a staff nurse in a medical facility in Pollok, Texas.
On or about the said date, the RN administered Rocephin to two patients instead of the influenza vaccine as ordered by the physician. She also inaccurately documented she administered the influenza vaccine to the two patients in the patients’ respective Medication Administration Record (MAR). Her conduct was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would rely on his documentation to administer further care to the patient. Her conduct was also likely to injury the patient in that the administration of Rocephin without a physician’s order could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the RN denies the allegation.
Because of the incident, the RN was disciplined and suspended by the Board of Nursing.
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.
