Losing your license may greatly affect your future career, but only if you failed to hire an experienced and dedicated nurse attorney for your case. There are some RNs who missed their chances to get their license saved from revocation just because they weren’t able to hire any nurse attorney to properly defend them.
This RN from a medical facility in Houston, Texas happens to be one of them. On or about January 12, 2017, she falsely documented vital signs in the vital sign log sheet for a certain patient in that the patient was not home and a visit was not conducted.
Further, the RN admitted to the Administrator and Alternative Administrator that she documented vital signs for the patient and did not know why she did it. Her conduct created an inaccurate medical record and failure to administer medication as ordered by the physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
The RN was given the chance to defend herself from all the accusations and cases filed against her. During the defense, she states she made an error and documented vital signs on January 12, 2017. However, she states she corrected the error, and denies intentionally falsifying records.
However, without enough evidence to support her case and a nurse attorney to help her, she was discipline. Thus, the Texas Board of Nursing subjected her license for revocation.
The RN denied the allegations against her. However, without a skilled nurse attorney to defend her, she lost her case. The Texas Board of Nursing finds that her condition could have affected her ability to recognize any signs and changes in patient’s condition. Additionally, her condition could have affected her ability to make rational judgements and decisions regarding patient care, which could place the patient in danger.
Because of this, the RN has been subjected for discipline.
