Nurse Accused of Abandoning Coding Patient has Complaint Dismissed

Long term care nurse

Primary Issue:
Nurse accused of leaving a patient in a code status who later expired received an administrative complaint accusing her of Negligence MCL 333.16221(a), Violation of the General Duty MCL 333.16221(a), and incompetence MCL 333.16221(i). Possible licensing sanctions (punishment) included license revocation.

Benefit of Using Chapman Law Group:
Through a thorough investigation we were able to determine that our Client left the patient to perform vital duties necessary to secure transport of the patient to the emergency room and another nurse on duty should have been with the patient and assisted the patient during the code. While many involved in the case felt that our client was the one at fault, we successfully presented our arguments to the Board of Nursing and were ultimately successful in securing a dismissal of the case.

The Michigan Board of Nursing completely dismissed the case.
