Registered nurses are important to healthcare in Dallas. That’s why when something goes wrong, the blame is to spread around to everyone involved. This is why a nurse attorney in Dallas is needed when a file was charged against a nurse

An instance when an accusation was filed against an RN happened on or about February to March 2018. At that time, the RN was currently employed in a rehabilitation center in Dallas Texas and had been in that position for 2 years already.

During the said date, the RN failed to notify the physician when a patient, a dialysis patient, was not receiving Sensipar as ordered. The physician ordered daily administration of Sensipar, but the patient was not administered the medication during this time period.

In addition, the patient’s parathyroid hormone (PTH) level increased from 432 mg/L to 1244 ng/L, which was double the patient’s maximum goal range. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient from risks of elevated PTH including weak bones and calcification of tissues and organs.

The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.

Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, she states: “I noticed the patient did not have Sensipar in stock. I did notify the pharmacy to resupply. I did fail to notify the doctor, but I assumed someone else did. I should have followed up with the doctor about it.”

The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney in Dallas could have helped the case become better for the LVN.

The Texas Board of Nursing found the RN’s conduct was grossly negligence. Thus, the RN was found guilty and her license was disciplined and suspended.

She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
