Whenever someone filed a complaint against you involving negligence at work, your license could be put in danger if not defended by a nurse attorney. An RN from Houston, Texas is just one of the many examples of nurses who found to be negligent while on duty.
On or about July 28, 2017, while employed as a Family Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Manager in a medical facility in Houston, the RN allegedly failed to accurately and completely document her assessment of, diagnosis, and plan of care for a patient she presented to the clinic for removal of her birth control implant. Additionally, the RN failed to address and treat and failed to document her discussion with and plan of care for the patient regarding her elevated blood pressure of 183/136.
The RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent providers would not have complete information to base their decisions for further care. Additionally, her conduct unnecessarily exposed the patient to a risk of harm from complications associated with uncontrolled hypertension.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. However, without valid evidence to defend her side of the story, the RN lost the case.
Furthermore, the RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
Do not fret if you find yourself in a similar situation the same as that of the RN mentioned above. All you need to do is to find the right nurse attorney who can help you in the case. Equip yourself with the knowledge and expertise you need for a successful outcome by consulting a knowledgeable and experienced Texas nurse attorney. Contact the Law Office of Yong J.
