Any type of accusations can be defended if there is a skilled Texas nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action, or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for fourteen (14) years and one (1) month.
On or about February 17, 2020, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Dallas, Texas, RN failed to verify and/or obtain consent for a blood transfusion for a patient prior to the administration of the blood transfusion. Subsequently, the provider obtained the patient’s consent for the blood transfusion on the following day. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the administration of blood products without the patient’s informed consent jeopardized the patient’s personal autonomy.
In response to the above incident, RN states that the patient had received blood during the previous shift that day. RN states that another registered nurse was present to verify the blood administration with her, and as she was quickly scrolling through the electronic documents, she thought she had seen a signature on the consent form.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(1)(D)&(1)(N) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(B).
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN’s license to disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
