At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Little Elm, Texas, and had been in that position for approximately three (3) years.
On or about December 11, 2017, through February 20, 2018, while employed as a Registered Nurse the RN failed to submit skilled nursing notes and aide supervisory visit notes in a timely manner. The RN’s conduct deprived subsequent caregivers of accurate information which may be used to base their decisions for further care.
In response, the RN states documentation was not completed in a timely manner due to unforeseen circumstances with her elderly parents and her own health.
