At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Registered Nurse in a hospital in Plano, Texas, and had been in that position for three 3 years and two 2 months.
On or about April 2, 2014, the RN failed to document in the medical record of a patient the interventions she provided when the patient had a significant decrease in her blood pressure and increased agitation.
The RN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record and exposed the patient unnecessarily to a risk of harm from ineffective treatment.
In response to the incident, the RN states she had called the patient’s physician because the patient was agitated and was pulling her leads off. She received orders but the physician wouldn’t do anything about the blood pressure stating that she needed to call the internal medicine physician. She called the physician assistant and got an order to hold the blood pressure medicine.
The RN further states she did a poor job of documenting the care she provided to this patient. She states it was a very busy night but that she has learned from this experience that she needs to document.
