Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a reliable nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who found guilty of negligence while on duty.
On or about September 9, 2016, the RN falsely documented in the medical record of a patient in that she stated she performed two-person Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) with the caregiver doing breaths. However, the patient’s care giver denied assisting in CPR.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. She explains that that she entered the room where the patient was unresponsive, checked for breathing and pulse and then started CPR while the care giver called 911. Furthermore, the RN states that the care giver helped her move the patient off the bed and aligns the patient’s neck, but she performed one-person CPR.
However, the Board thinks that this conduct displayed by the RN was misleading and created an inaccurate medical record,
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
