If you have a good defense on your side, a nurse attorney can provide excellent assistance. There are cases where some nurses might commit mistakes such as negligence. Having a nurse attorney for assistance or defense is a big help to resolve cases that a nurse is going through.
On or about April 15, 2016, an LVN failed to document that the daily sage wipe I hibilcens bath was performed for a patient. The patient required the Hibiclens baths daily due to the patient’s chest port was positive for MRSA. The ADL I Hygiene Flowsheet requiring documentation that personal care was provided to the patient, was left blank, noting the CHG bath was not given to the patient. The LVN’s conduct resulted in an incomplete medical record.
Subsequently, she also failed to administer Sinemet to the patient as ordered by the doctor. It was discovered on the following shift that the Sinemet that was to have been administered was not given to the patient, and noted as “Rescheduled” in the Medication Administration Record (MAR) by the LVN.
This conduct done by the LVN could cause great danger and injure the patient in that failure to administer medications as ordered by the doctor could have resulted in non-efficacious treatment of the patient’s condition.
Because of this, the RN was summoned by the Texas Board of Nursing to defend her side. She admits she was unaware the IV pump was incorrect when it was beeping indicating the IVIG infusion was complete. She further adds that she did not know why the medication was not administered, but admits she did not administer the dose at 04:00, as scheduled.
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.
