Correct administration of medication to a patient is true should be error-free as this could have an aggravating effect on a patient’s recovery during treatment. It should be in a nurse’s perspective to give the proper care to patients and will have a patient send home because he or she is well and was provided the intended care needed with less to no mistake to avoid dealing with complaints and accusations in the future and on the other hand, a nurse attorney is someone who can help you deal with it.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a medical facility in Pasadena, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and nine (9) months.
On or about February 12, 2019, the RN administered Latanoprost eye drops to a patient and failed to document the administration into the student’s medication administration record, resulting in another nurse also administering the eye drops. Subsequently, the student received a double dose of ordered eye drops. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate and incomplete medication record and was likely to injure the student in that subsequent caregivers did not have accurate and complete information on which to base their decisions for further care.
In response to the incident, the RN admits that she failed to return the medication to the patient’s medication bin and failed to sign the student’s medication administration record.
The RN’s conduct had put her in a bad situation. She even failed to hire a nurse attorney during the time when she was given the right of legal counsel. The Texas Board of Nursing had decided to put the RN in disciplinary action. The RN could have received a different ending result if he had consulted and ask assistance from a nurse attorney. But he failed to hire a nurse attorney that has led to the decision of the Texas Board of Nursing.
