But we can avoid the worst thing to happen by asking for help from an expert and skilled nurse attorney.
One of the examples where a client failed to hire the right Lubbock nurse attorney will be discussed in this case.
At the time of the incident, the RN was employed in a hospital in Lubbock, Texas, and had been in that position for seven years and six months.
On or about December 4, 2018, the RN failed to synchronize a defibrillator while a patient was experiencing ventricular tachycardia. Instead, the RN inappropriately shocked the aforementioned patient, who was not sedated, utilizing 200 joules of instant electrical shock in violation of Advanced Cardiovascular Life Support guidelines. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient from potentially adverse complications of cardiac dysrhythmias, including possible cardiac arrest.
In response to the incident, the RN states she unintentionally failed to synchronize the defibrillator before shocking the patient. She also states she accepts responsibility for her action.
However, the RN failed to properly present and defend her case against the court. She was disciplined and warned of suspension of her license by violating Texas Board of Nursing regulation.
