Nurses facing many cases they never committed or wish to deny should hire a reliable and skilled nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any criminal charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the RN from Houston should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.
On or about August 21, 2017, through September 21, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in, Lockney, Texas, the RN signed assessments that she didn’t conducted but merely conducted and completed by another RN. Additionally, the RN signed Supervisory Visits that were completed by the RN, for patients that she had not seen.
Her conduct resulted in inaccurate medical records and was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent care givers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their care decisions.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN admits to completing the Admission Assessment Care Plans that were discussed at the hospital meetings, however, the other RN did not follow up assessments that the RN signed as she was under impression that follow-up Care Plans did not require the RN assessment.
Further, she signed the assessments conducted by the RN for several patients and again was under impression it was acceptable. She also admits she signed Supervisory Visits made by the RN, and not herself as required, due to health concerns, and not living close to the agency.
Because of this, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action right away. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
