If you have a good defense on your side, a skilled nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit malpractice while at work.
On or about May 3, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse in a medical facility in Austin, Texas, the RN withdrew three syringes of Morphine 4mg from the medication dispensing system for a patient, but failed to document, and accurately and completely document the administration of the medication in the patient’s Medication Administration Record (MAR) and Nurses’ Notes.
Further, the RN failed to follow the facility’s policy and procedure for wastage of the unused portions of the medication. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent care givers would rely on her documentation to further medicate the patient, which could result in an overdose, left medications unaccounted for, and placed the facility in violation of Chapter 481 (Controlled Substances Act) of the Texas Health and Safety Code.
On or about the abovementioned date, the RN withdrew three syringes of Morphine 4mg from the medication dispensing system for a patient in excess frequency and dosage of the physician’s orders. Her conduct was likely to injure the patient in that the administration of medications in excess frequency/ dosage of the physician’s order could result in the patient suffering from adverse reactions.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. In response to case filed against her, the RN neither admits nor denies.
A RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a nurse attorney. Doing so could make or break their cases. As a matter of fact, the license can even be suspended or revoked if not defended properly.
The Texas Board of Nursing (BON) is the government agency that has jurisdiction to hear and decide administrative cases involving RN and LVN license.The Board has the power to suspend and/or revoke the nurse license. It is also the agency that is responsible for overseeing the practice of professional nursing all over the State of Texas.
The Texas Board of Nursing decided to revoke her license as a result of her actions. It’s because she failed to hire a good nurse attorney for the case, which is why her defense was not matched with the evidence that the Board possesses.
