The practice of the nursing profession can become challenging and demanding all at the same time. An RN in Texas needs to follow several rules and regulations in order to prevent revocation of her RN license. In the past, several cases were filed against different nurses for misconduct and gross negligence which may have put their RN license in danger. Nurses should never forget that when facing such cases, it is essential to hire a reliable nurse attorney for the defense.
This is exactly what happened to a particular RN in Brenham when she left her nursing assignment without first notifying her supervisor. Additionally, she falsely recorded she left the facility on her timecard.
Her conduct was deceitful and was likely to injure patients in that leaving the nursing assignment could have resulted in the patients not getting the care that they needed.
In response to accusations filed on her, the RN states she left the facility for a lunch break at the end of her shift. She states there was another RN on the unit who was aware of the situation and had no problem with it at the time.
The RN states she went two miles down the road to Wal-Mart to get her lunch. She further states when she arrived, she overheard another nurse on the unit talking negatively about her to a co-worker, she confronted her, and things quickly escalated. She states she went to the floor and only administered the 0700 medications and documented on the EMAR accordingly. Upon arriving back to the nurse’s station, the RN states her co-worker was still upset and continued to argue. The Fannin Unit is only required to have two nurses, and she states she was the third nurse on duty.
The RN indicates she felt the best thing to do was to leave the situation before things got out of hand. She states she gave report to both nurses and told them she was leaving for the day.
The RN’s actions were in violation of hospital policy and required further investigation. As a result, her RN license was disciplined and suspended. If you are in the same situation, never hesitate to seek assistance from a reliable nurse attorney.
Avoid the same thing from happening in your case. Make sure to take the necessary steps in dealing with a complaint filed before the Board against you or else, your RN license may be put in danger.
