At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a health facility in Beaumont, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) year and two (2) months.
On or about December 13, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the said left a medically fragile patient in her bed, unattended and with the side rail down. As a result, the patient fell onto the floor. Furthermore, the RN failed to assess the patient after finding her on the floor, and she failed to document the fall in the patient’s medical records. The RN’s failure to assess exposed the patient unnecessarily to a risk of harm from complications due to undiagnosed injury from the fall. The failure of the RN to document was likely to injure the patient in that subsequent caregivers would not have the benefit of the information on which to base their medical care.
It was on or about December 13, 2017, while employed as a Registered Nurse, the RN falsified the patient’s mother’s signature in the patient’s nurse visit documentation. The conduct of the RN was likely to deceive the facility.
In light of the occurrence, the RN acknowledges she left the bedside for a personal bathroom emergency and left the rails of the bed down. She states that when she returned and found the patient on the floor, she disconnected the CPT machine and quickly assessed the patient for injury, O2 saturation, and heart rate before putting the patient in her wheelchair.
As a result, the Board placed her RN license to a disciplinary action instead. However, she was not able to provide a good defense for herself, especially when the evidence was brought up to her.
