If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit unauthorized access in a certain area within a hospital even if they need to do something important there.
One such incident happened on or about February 16, 2016, when an RN based in Dallas, Texas accessed the administrative offices of the hospital without any authorization from any staff. Additionally, the RN used a computer there in order to change a certain punch-in time in her records. Specifically, she punched in 34 hours of overtime, even though she never committed such amount of hours during her shift.
The misconduct can alter certain records in the hospital that’s valuable for the sake of the staff, residents and the patients. Additionally, the RN has deceived the hospital regarding her payroll and the hospital’s funds due to falsification of overtime records.
She was given a chance to defend before the Texas Board of Nursing for her actions. She stated that she went into the supervisor’s office to look for an eraser that she needed at the moment. She also added that she brought her personal computer to update any changes on her schedule.
She also added that all nurses and staff have access to the supervisor’s office so then they can change anything especially regarding patient charting. She explained that the office door is always open without any notice of any restricted access. She also explained that there was a glitch at the computer’s clock that she reported to the human resources department.
She also stated that the human resources department may have made a typographical error and was accusing her as a result. She also mentioned that she never had the ability to change her time or add hours of overtime because only supervisors and the human resources department had access to manual time addition.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
