Any type of accusations can be defended, as long as there is a skilled nurse attorney ready to assist you during the hearing before the Board of Nursing. The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) has full jurisdiction regarding cases that may affect an RN or LVN’s license from suspension, disciplinary action or revocation.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a health facility in Dallas, Texas, and had been in that position for seven (7) months.
On or about April 23, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said RN failed to completely and accurately document her assessments and her notifications to the physicians when the patient experienced a change in condition. The action of the RN contributed to an inaccurate medical record.
In response to that, the RN stated that she transported another patient to the floor around 1620 and when she returned at 1645, the patient was audibly congested. The RN states that she auscultated the patient’s lungs, reported to, and asked the charge nurse to contact respiratory therapy. The charge nurse instructed the RN to suction the patient so she located supplies and suctioned pink frothy sputum from the patient. Additionally, the RN said that she notified the physician on call via Amion messaging and she gave Bumex IV push as ordered at 1810 but it was ineffective. The said RN added that she notified the physician at 1705, but failed to document it in the medical record.
However, without valid evidence and expert nurse attorney to defend her, the RN was suspended and disciplined.
The RN lost the case simply because she failed to find an effective and efficient nurse attorney. Avoid committing the same mistake she did.
