Whenever someone filed a complaint against you, your license could be put in danger if not defended by an experienced and effective Dallas Nurse Attorney.

At the time of the initial incident, the RN was employed as a Staff Nurse in a medical facility in Dallas and had been in this position for two years and four months. 

On or about December 30, 2016, the RN allegedly exceeded her nursing scope of practice when she administered Versed to a female patient without a physician’s order. When the physician arrived, the patient was confused, combative, and struggling to breathe. The physician had to begin the necessary emergency interventions. 

The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that upon administration of Versed, the patient began to have adverse reactions and was struggling to breathe. 

The Texas Board of Nursing is the one who has full jurisdiction on cases involving RNs and LVNs. Therefore, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to explain her side.

In response to the incident, the RN states that she was trained by two nurses when she transferred to the cath lab. She was told that the cath lab had standing orders to pre-medicate patients prior to the procedure. She saw it done many times and doctors would come in the lab and ask “have you given them anything?” or “did you medicate them?” These statements by the doctors reinforced what the RN believed were legitimate standing orders. After the incident, the RN learned from her manager that there never were any such standing orders and she changed her practice accordingly. 

However, the RN without the help of an experienced Dallas Nurse Attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN. 

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 Dallas Nurse Attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
