Thank you for using JA. I have read your comments above.
What is your legal question so I can help?
can they go after my license and am I guilty of neglect
I did write it on the day report, but i was the following nurse as i was working a double.
Don't know what the pt has suffered ambulance arrived as i was being walked out
yes the nurse on the other unit I told her i thought it was cellulitis and could she take a look at it, she is the nurse that usually works that floor so she should actually have seen it before if what the CNA said was true
(7) Abandoning or knowingly neglecting patients/clients requiring nursing care.
But if there were no severe complications based on the lack of prompt care, I would opine that this would not rise to the level of having the nursing board revoke your license. This would more likely be resolved if brought before the board with a written reprimand.
However, this would give the hospital grounds to terminate your employment if they chose to.
Please don't forget to rate my service "OK" or higher. It is only then that I receive credit for my work.
If you need further help, just reply to me via the “REPLY” or “CONTINUE CONVERSATION” button and I will be happy to continue.
I am trying to help you understand and resolve your situation but I don't make the laws, so the outcome may not be what you had hoped for.
. Please be patient as I am typically working with several customers at any given time.
