There are instances where a nurse attorney can be very useful whenever an RN or an LVN faced criminal charges, complaints or any accusations. Patients tend to file complaints immediately whenever they experience poorly regarding patient care during treatment. But any RN or LVN can defend themselves when such thing happens.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Keller, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and seven (7) months.
On or about June 24, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to appropriately intervene when another Registered Nurse informed her that an Licensed Vocational Nurse failed to document a verbal order for Dexamethasone via nebulizer for a patient on June 23, 2019. Instead, the she instructed the other Registered Nurse to obtain and document a telephone order from the provider for the Dexamethasone which was already administered by the LVN the previous day. Her conduct created a false medical record that was likely to deceive the facility.
In response, the RN states she failed to follow up and ensure the LVN that had documented her administration of the Dexamethasone up to her return from vacation. Additionally, she admits to asking the other Registered Nurse to document the verbal order received from the provider.
As a result, to the RN’s conduct, the RN will be facing disciplinary action from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) and may receive further sanctions. The evidence received is sufficient to prove that there is violation(s) and is cause pursuant to Section 301.452(b)(10) & (13).
