A missed documentation and failure to administer medicine in a timely manner are some of the typical errors or mistakes committed by any nurse. These mistakes may become grounds or the cause for nursing malpractice, and if being accused, you need a right and skilled nurse attorney to help you with the case.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Texarkana Texas and had been in that position for six (6) months.
On or about December 13, 2018, an RN failed to administer and/or document the administration of Enoxaparin to a patient in the patient’s medical record during her shift. The RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered by the physician could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment.
In response to the incident, the RN states that she does not recall this patient, and she does not remember why it was not documented in the patient’s medical record. The RN states that it could have been her mistake or the other nurse could have been the one giving medications, but she does not recall.
As a result, the RN will be subjected to disciplinary action. The RN may also be given a sanction for the inappropriate actions that she did. It is that the evidence received is sufficient enough to put the RN into disciplinary action. The RN could have not been in such a situation if only she had consulted and hired an experienced and skilled nurse attorney for the case.
