Negligence is a serious case, which is why a nurse attorney is needed if you get accused of this kind of scenario. However, some who thought they were guilty of the charges failed to hire a nurse attorney just because they thought it’s the doom for their RN or LVN license already. But that is not entirely the case as there is still hope.
Unfortunately, an RN from San Antonio failed to do this, resulting in disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing. Take note that the Board handles all of the cases that may affect the RN or LVN license from receiving the suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation. However, with the right nurse attorney for the case, rest assured that the case can go according to the nurse’s favor, especially if the nurse has a good defense against the case.
On or about October 7. 2018. while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in San Antonio, the RN allegedly failed to administer medications to patients, as ordered by a physician. She also hung Vancomycin on the wrong patient in that she hung the medication on a patient when it was ordered for another patient.
On or about October 27, 2018, the RN also failed to administer Fleets Enema, Bumex, and Metolozone, to two patients. She also falsely documented in a patient’s medical record that she administered medications to the patient when there were no medication withdrawals from the Medication Dispensing System associated with the time or date of the administration.
In response to the complaints filed against her, the LVN admits she charted incorrectly but states it was unintentional she states some of her errors were due to 10 mismarkings the Medication Administration Record (MAR), but states she doesn’t remember every incident. Respondent states she is extremely sorry for the mistakes she made
This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing discipline and suspended her license.
Any RN or LVN should never use any substance in and out of work as it may affect their performance, which may lead to further issues to the patients they are taking care of.
