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 malpractice.
At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a health facility in Sugar Land, Texas, and had been in that position for less than one (1) month.
On or about March 4, 2019, through April 15, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to accurately enter medication into the Electronic Health Record (EHR) for the patient, in that the RN entered Equate Children’s Cold & Cough containing Bromphenlramine Maleate one (1) milligrams, Dextromethorphan five (5) milligrams, Phenylephrine two and one half (2.5) milligrams. The correct dosage was Bromphenlramine Maleate two (2) milligrams, Dextromethorphan ten (10) milligrams, and Phenylephrine five (5) milligrams. Subsequently, the wrong dosage of medication was documented as administered in the Student EHR on March 6, 2019, and March 7, 2019. The failure of the RN resulted in an inaccurate medical record.
It was on or about March 18, 2019, through April 15, 2019, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN failed to accurately enter a medication change into the Electronic Health Record (EHR) for the patient. Specifically, the RN received a new order and parent authorization for the patient’s Focalin (Dexmethylphenidate) seven and one half (7.5) milligram dosage to be changed to ten (10) milligrams. The RN did not enter the medication dose change into EHR for eight (8) days after the change was ordered. Subsequently, the patient did not accurately reflect the dosage the student received on those days. The RN’s conduct resulted in an inaccurate medical record.
In addition, the RN said that she did not intentionally leave out the name of the medication and states that she was not aware that she had done so.
However, the RN without the help of an experienced nurse attorney to help her defend her case, the Texas Board of Nursing suspended and disciplined the RN.
