In the intricate profession of healthcare, the diligent administration of medications is a cornerstone of patient care, demanding precision, and adherence to established protocols. However, instances where healthcare professionals deviate from these critical standards can lead to serious consequences, both for patient well-being and the professional standing of the nurse involved. An experienced nurse attorney plays a pivotal role in safeguarding the rights of the RN and formulating a robust defense strategy to address potential professional and legal repercussions arising from deviations in medication administration practices.

At the time of the initial incident, she was employed as an RN at a hospital in Abilene, Texas, and had been in that position for three (3) years.

On or about March 1, 2021, through March 24, 2021, while employed as an RN at a hospital in Abilene, Texas, RN administered medications to seven (7) different patients outside the parameter of a physician’s order, without a pain scale and/or without documenting special instructions in the patients’ medical record. RN’s conduct was likely to injure the patients in that failure to administer medication as ordered by a physician, without a pain scale and/or without documenting special instructions could result in the patients suffering from adverse reactions. 

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)(B),(1)(C),(1)(D),(1)(N)&(1)(P) and 22 TEX. ADMIN. CODE §217.12 (1)(A),(1)(B),(1)(C)&(4).

However, the RN failed to consult with an experienced nurse attorney for the case and without enough evidence to prove she’s not guilty, the RN lost the case. This is the reason why the Texas Board of Nursing placed her RN license under disciplinary action.
