Any type of accusation can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation. 

At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Edinburg, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years and eleven (11) months.

On or about March 1, 2021, through April 29, 2021, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to ensure prescribed medications were appropriately reconciled and available for a Patient after direct care staff repeatedly documented in the electronic Medication Administration Record that the patient’s medications were not available in the home. Subsequently, the patient was without all prescribed medications for two (2) months, including those medications prescribed to treat hypertension. The patient was then transferred to the emergency room and diagnosed with a stroke. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered by the physician could have resulted in the non-efficacious treatment of the patient’s hypertension, and may have contributed to the patient suffering a stroke.

In response to the incident, the RN states she does not recall seeing any reports of missing nrdications. The RN further states she is extremely sorry for what happened with the patient. The RN also states she was at fault for not completing medication counts, and also states she was overwhelmed with her

Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license to disciplinary action.

The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
