At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Mesquite, Texas, and had been in that for one (1) year and two (2) months.
On or about September 25, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN administered Cardizem, a cardiac medication, and guaifenesin to a patient in excess of physician orders. The orders were to administer Cardizem and guaifenesin every 12 hours. the last dose administered was at 1 532, and the RN administered the medications hours after the last dose at 20 15. Additionally, the RN failed to assess the patient’s vital signs prior to administering the medications. The patient’s heart rate at 2030 was 88. The next set of recorded vitals was on September 26, 2019, at 0500 and the patient’s heart rate was the RN’s conduct exposed the patient to a risk of harm from unnecessary administration of extra doses of cardiac medication without a physician’s order.
In response to the incident, the RN states that the patient’s morning medications, including Cardizem, were given by the day-shift nurse later in the day than usual after the patient returned from a procedure. The RN states that after scanning the medication, the family verbalized the patient already had taken Cardizem, then requested the RN to leave the room so the patient could rest. The RN later attempted to correct the record but had difficulty with the computer program. The RN states the patient’s vitals remained stable throughout her shift and she was not alerted by the automated system of any abnormal vitals.
The RN failed to hire a nurse attorney to help her with her case. Because of this, the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) suspended and disciplined the RN.
An RN or LVN who violates the state laws and issuances from the Texas Board of Nursing (BON) should seek proper help from a criminal 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.
