Any type of accusations or negligence can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
Accusations regarding negligence are a must to be observed properly not only by the Board but by a nurse attorney. An example of this happened to an RN in Houston wherein an accusation was filed against her negligence at work.
On or about April 23, 2016, the RN accidentally administered Hydrogen peroxide 100ccx2 via a peg to a patient, an eighty-two-year-old male.
The order for the patient read “Flush Peg Tube with 100cc H2O QHx2.”. The RN failed to meet minimal standards of acceptable and prevailing nursing practice in that she administered hydrogen peroxide to the patient.
When summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing, the RN denies the accusation.
Unfortunately, the Texas Board of Nursing believed that there is not enough evidence to support the RN’s defense.
Because of this incident, the Texas Board of Nursing then subjected the RN and her license into disciplinary action.
The accusation would have been defended by an experienced and skilled nurse attorney, had the LVN hired one. Hiring a nurse attorney for defense is applicable for any kind of accusation laid against an RN or LVN.
