When it comes to disciplinary proceedings before an administrative body in the state of Texas, the first thing that you need to take into consideration is to hire the best Texas nurse attorney. This attorney can help any RN or LVN defend herself and try to prevent the revocation of the license of RN/LVN in Texas.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a rehabilitation facility in Garland, Texas, and had been in that position for five (5) months.
On or about April 15, 2020, while employed as an RN at a rehabilitation facility in Garland, Texas, RN was accused of the following:
1. RN failed to notify the physician and/or Director of Nursing (DON) that the resident refused her continuous feedings at night on multiple occasions. Additionally, RN failed to document the resident’s refusal of continuous feedings in the resident’s medical record. RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed the resident to a risk of harm from complications associated with inadequate nutrition. Additionally, RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the resident in that subsequent caregivers would not have complete information to base their decisions for future care.
2. RN falsely documented that the above-mentioned resident received continuous feedings at night, as ordered, in that RN later admitted to the DON that the resident refused her continuous feedings many times during the month of April. RN’s conduct was deceptive and created an inaccurate medical record.
The above actions constitute 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)(D),(1)(D)&(3) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C),(4),(6)(A)&(6)(H).
The Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license to disciplinary action. The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled Texas Nursing Law Attorney, had the RN hired one. Hiring a Texas Nursing Law Attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
