At the time of the initial incident, an RN was employed as a Registered Nurse at a hospital in Amarillo, Texas, and had been in that position for one (1) month.

An incident happened on or about March 22, 2019, through February 24, 2020, an RN failed to complete and/or submit documentation for patients. The RN’s conduct resulted in inaccurate medical records and was likely to injure the patients in that subsequent caregivers would not have complete information on which to base their care decisions.

In response to the incident, the RN states that after broken promises and numerous staff changes, she decided it was time to leave and made it clear she would no longer be working for them. Respondent states she’s sorry the agency feels she owes them work for admission/discharges, but she had not received an employment check from the agency since early February.

As a result, due to the incident; the Texas Board of Nursing had placed the RN into disciplinary action. This had to happen as the RN had failed to hire a nurse attorney as a legal counsel before facing the Board. This could have led to a different outcome if only the RN consulted and hire a nurse attorney.
