Nurses facing any cases they never committed should hire a nurse attorney to strengthen their defense. Professional help can provide a better form of defense against the Texas Board of Nursing as an RN or LVN faces an accusation of any criminal charge they wish to deny. This is just one of the many cases the RN from Houston should have known had she only hired a nurse attorney to help her.

On or about September 2017 until May 2018, while working as head nurse in a medical facility in Houston, the RN failed to personally assess clients prior to a Registered Nurse providing intravenous and injectable nutritional/vitamin supplements for parenteral administration by a Registered Nurse. Instead, she assigned the assessment, diagnosis, and determination of treatment plans to a Registered Nurse which exceeds the scope of practice of a Registered Nurse. Her conduct exposed the clients to risk for harm from the parenteral administration of nutritional/vitamin supplements including drug interactions, infection, allergic reaction and/or toxicity.

In response, the RN states she believes the Registered Nurse to whom she assigned the task of providing intravenous and injectable vitamin supplements did not exceed her scope of practice, independently assess clients, diagnoses conditions, or determine treatment plans. She states intravenous and injectable vitamins are an emerging industry and believes no prescription is required for intravenous and injectable vitamins, which consumers may order over the counter and self-administer.

The RN was given the chance to defend against her case and present herself to the Board. However, despite her explanation, the Board of Nursing placed her under disciplinary action but without any suspension whatsoever. Hiring the right nurse attorney for this case would be of great help, knowing that she denied the accusations.
