A missed documentation and failure to administer medicine in a timely manner are some of the typical errors or mistakes committed by any nurse. These mistakes may become grounds for nursing malpractice, and if being accused, you need the right and skilled nurse attorney to help you with the case.
At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN with a healthcare service provider in Temple, Texas, and had been in that position for nine (9) months.
On or about April 2020 through May 2020, while employed with a healthcare service provider in Temple, Texas, RN failed to complete and submit nursing documentation for patients. RN’s conduct created an incomplete medical record and caused subsequent care givers to not have complete information to base their decisions for further medical care.
In response to the above incident, RN states she turned in the documentation. RN explains that she spoke with the Director of Clinical Services due to her caseload being beyond what she could handle. RN states she resigned from the position due to lack of support from the DON. RN states she did have some work left after she resigned, but turned it in.
The above action constitutes grounds for disciplinary action in accordance with Section 301.452(b)(10)&(13), Texas Occupations Code, and is a violation of 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.11(1)(A)&(1)(D) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12(1)(B).
The Texas Board of Nursing gave the RN enough time to defend the complaints filed against her. However, there was a failure on the RN’s part to find the right RN/LVN license attorney to handle her case. The negligence of the RN/LVN license attorney led to the decision of the Texas BON to place the RN’s license under disciplinary action.
