On or about May 22, 2008, while employed in a university hospital in Lubbock, the LVN failed to safely titrate a Dopamine drip for a patient in that she infused Dopamine at a rate of 75ml/hr, which was substantially above the maximum dose of 20mcg/kg/min.
Subsequently, the patient became diaphoretic, complained of chest pain, and had a blood pressure of 181/86. The LVN’s action exposed Patient MR# 4124105 to the risk of harm to include but not limited to; vascular stroke, aneurism, and renal failure.
In Response to the complaints filed against her, the LVN states that she had discontinued and disconnected the tubing for the Dopamine infusion for said patient earlier in the day. She states that she was surprised when she and her Charge nurse found the Dopamine drip attached and infusing to said patient later in the day, and she immediately stopped the pump. She suggests that the patient’s girlfriend may have restarted the infusion on her own.
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.
Because of this, 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.
It’s best to seek the help of a nurse attorney when facing charges related to drug use. However, some nurses tend to face these results instead without thinking that nurse attorneys are always reliable for matters such as these.
