If someone filed an accusation against you, it may compromise your career and a right Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
An instance when an accusation was filed against an LVN happened on or about August 2017. During the time of the incident, the LVN was currently employed in a rehabilitation center in Texas.
On or about August 3, 2017, through August 4, 2017, the LVN administered approximately 1000mcg/100mL of Fentanyl to a patient, over a thirty-five minute period, when the maximum rate ordered was 200mcg/hr or 20mL/hr.
Subsequently, the patient coded and required Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR). The patient died the following day. The LVN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient from decreased cardiac output and may have contributed to his subsequent death.
On or about August 3, 2017, through August 4, 2017, the LVN failed to notify, and document the notification of the physician regarding the increasing temperature of the patient. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient from medical care decisions based on incomplete information.
The Texas Board of Nursing has full jurisdiction over all cases that may affect the RN license. The strictness of the Board also ensures that nurses will only commit to the duties they are assigned to in order to guarantee accurate and excellent performance in all hospitals throughout the state of Texas.
Because of this, the LVN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. During the defense, the LVN states that she incorrectly programmed the IV pump and that she failed to document the titration of medications in the medical record. Also, she states the physician was present in the unit when she informed him of changes in the patient’s condition.
The Texas Board of Nursing subjected the LVN and her license into disciplinary action. The assistance of a nurse attorney could have helped the case become better for the LVN.
The Texas Board of Nursing found the LVN’s conduct was grossly negligence. Thus, the LVN was found guilty and her LVN license was disciplined and suspended.
She lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney.
