At the time of the initial incident, an RN was licensed as an Advanced Nurse Practitioner, and Working as an Adult Nurse Practitioner at a hospital in The Colony, Texas, and •had been in that position for three (3) months.
On or about April 15, 2019, while working as an Adult Nurse Practitioner, the RN inappropriately documented her patient encounter of the patient, including a physical exam. Later, the RN reported that she did not have time to see the patient. The RN’s condüct also created an incorrect entry in the medical record, upon which other caregivers. could have relied on subsequent care of the patient.
In response, the RN reports she never intended to falsify medical records; all the information in the note was obtained from the nurse through a verbal report. The RN reports she intended to transcribe a phone encounter and it was never meant to be placed in the chart, nor was the encounter billed.
As a result, the RN was given disciplinary action by the Texas Board of Nursing (BON). And also, her lack of an experienced nurse attorney to properly defend her case led to an unfavorable outcome for her which also affected her career as an RN. The RN was also said to be under probation due to her misconduct.
