Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence at work, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a right nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who found to be negligent while on duty.
On or about March 3, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in Houston, the RN failed to administer Apidra Solostar (Insulin Glulisine) to her assigned patient before the patient ate a meal. In addition, the RN documented not administering the insulin to the patient because the patient was being discharged; however, the patient was not discharged until the assigned time of discharge.
Furthermore, while the patient waited to be discharged the RN failed to ensure the blood sugar levels of the patient were reassessed and insulin administered as needed. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would not have complete information on which to base their care decisions.
In addition, the RN’s conduct exposed the patient unnecessarily to a risk of harm in that significant changes in the patient’s blood sugar levels may have gone undetected and prevented a timely intervention.
On or about March 9, 2017, through April 14, 2017, the RN again failed to administer insulin to several patients as ordered by a physician. Her conduct was likely to injure the patients in that failure to administer medication as ordered by a physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side.
However, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the LVN.
