Facing any allegations can compromise your career and a Texas nurse attorney could provide you with the best help. If you have any valid reasons, you may refer to a nurse attorney to provide further defense against your case.
At the time of the incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a health facility in College Station, Texas, and had been in that position for eight (8) years and one (1) month.
On or about February 14, 2020, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said RN failed to accurately and completely document assessments and interventions performed on the patient. In addition, the RN exhibited a lack of fitness to practice in that she admitted to dozing at the nurse’s station for ten to fifteen minutes. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate and incomplete medical record and was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have accurate and complete information on which to base their decisions for further care. Additionally, the RN could have affected her ability to recognize subtle signs, symptoms, or changes in patient’s conditions, and could have affected her ability to make rational, accurate, and appropriate assessments, judgments, and decisions regarding patient care, thereby placing the patients in potential danger.
In terms of the incident that occurred, according to the RN, she is unaware of how thorough her charting was. The RN states that she was at the patient’s bedside for the majority of the night performing interventions and that she placed her head in her hands for a few minutes at the nurse’s station, dozing, before she sat up after ten to fifteen minutes and started charting.
However, 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.
