Accusations at work are one of the cases that a nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, an RN in El Paso failed to do so.
On or about June 1, 2018, the RN admitted she facilitated the false registration of two patients instructed a Clinic Assistant (CA) to create immunization visit appointments and took two (2) Shingrix vaccines in order to administer them to family members in Houston, who had not been seen at the clinic during the documented time of service. Her conduct was likely to deceive other caregivers who needed complete information on which to base their care and created an inaccurate medical record.
In response to the incident, the RN states she does not deny that she helped facilitate the creation of an inaccurate medical record. According to the RN, while her intent was only to enable the patients’ receipt of the Shingrix vaccine, she exercised poor judgment in not ensuring they were appropriately registered in the clinic’s system and seeing that the care provided was accurately documented in the medical record, she accepts responsibility for her handling of what occurred.
The Texas Board Of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.
Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
