False accusations are one of the cases that a skileed nurse attorney can resolve. These professionals can guarantee their clients that any false accusations over them can be denied over the Texas Board of Nursing once you hire them for assistance. Sadly, a RN in San Antonio failed to do so.

On or about November 2017, an investigation was carried after an alleged identified human error as the cause of the wrong blood type being given by a RN in El Paso.

According to the allegations, she had overridden a computer system warning when the incorrect blood type was issued and this resulted in the wrong blood being transfused. The report also identified a lack of competency on the part of the RN in administering transfusions in accordance with hospital policies, resulting in missed opportunities to identify the error before the blood was transfused. It also identified failings in observing the patient to identify problems early once the transfusion had commenced.

Prior to that, allegations also revealed that since March 2017 and prior to the patient’s transfusion, two other transfusions of incorrect blood type had occurred.

As a defense to the complaints filed against her, the RN denied everything including the alleged wrong blood type transfusion. But without the proof to support her case, her defense wasn’t accepted by the Court.

The Board of Texas has full jurisdiction over all cases regarding RNs and LVNs who committed any forms of offenses. They are also the ones holding decisions whether the RN or LVN’s license has to be suspended, revoked, or disciplined. Therefore, the Board decided to summon the RN for a hearing to defend against the complaint filed to her – this is the part where a nurse attorney should be hired.

False accusations may compromise your career, which is why a Texas nurse attorney could provide you the best help against these issues. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.

Because the RN failed to provide a nurse attorney to defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing then considered the evidence given to them and sentenced the RN and her license into disciplinary proceedings. She could have hired a nurse attorney to assist her in the case. To contact one, you may dial Nurse Attorney Yong J. An at (832) 428-5679 to schedule a private consultation.
