Part 1: Applying Rule 217.16
Minor Incident (217.16 a) vs. a Reportable incident (217.16 h):
A minor incidentÂ – 217.16(a) â€“ a nursesâ€™ actions may be a violation of a board rule but does not indicate the nurses continued practice poses a risk of harm to a patient or another person.
A reportable incident is- 217.16(h) – conduct that falls outside of the definition of a minor incident and must be reported to a Peer Review Committee or the BON.
Letâ€™s come up with an easy way to remember what a minor incident is. If you are ever in this situation or are participating on a peer review committee evaluating a fellow nurseâ€™s actions, think about the word â€œharp.â€
Â· H- no significantÂ Harm
Â· A- nurse must takeÂ Accountability
Â· R- easilyÂ Remediated
Â· P- noÂ PatternÂ of this behavior
Minor incidents must still be documented, tracked, and remedied. The nurse must be reported to the nursing Peer Review committee if a nurse commits five (5) minor incidents within a 12-month period.
Look at this case study scenario below.
â€œThe Nurse is caring for a newly admitted 67-year-old male patient with infectious endocarditis due to a bacterial infection of his prosthetic heart valve.Â After blood cultures come back positive for staphylococcus aureus, IV Vancomycin is ordered.Â The patient tells the Nurse and the doctor that the last time he got this medication, he experienced hives and hot, itchy skin but he was not allergic to it.Â The doctor ordered the medication to be infused slowly as to avoid Red Man Syndrome (500 mg IV bag at a rate of two hours as opposed to the standard one hour).Â The Nurse sets the IV pump incorrectly, and the infusion is given within a 30-minute period.Â The patient experiences an allergic reaction.Â The Nurse calls the doctor and immediately gives the ordered 50 mg diphenhydramine and ranitidine 50 mg via IV.Â The patient experienced mild flushing, but the episode resolved within 20 minutes. The Nurse is a well-seasoned nurse with over 20 years of experience and no prior history of incidents who took immediate responsibility for this error when meeting with the unit manager.Â As to remediation, the Nurse will now need another RN to witness and sign when she administers IV medication for the next 60 days. The Nurse agrees to this plan.”
Using the Texas BON Rule 217.16, review (a) a Minor Incident vs. (h) a reportable incident. This information can be found atÂ https://www.bon.texas.gov/rr_current/217-16.asp

Part 2: Applying Rule 217.19 Incident-Based Peer Review
First, review Incident-Based Peer Review. The purpose of anÂ IBPR isÂ to determine whether aÂ nurse shouldÂ be reported to the TexasÂ BoardÂ ofÂ NursingÂ (BON) for professional misconduct or licensure violations based on one or more such events. Use the link provided to review:Â https://www.bon.texas.gov/rr_current/217-19.asp. Apply the information to this case study.
“The Nurse is charting at the nurseâ€™s station where there are co-workers, physicians and a unit secretary gathered.Â The Nurse and the nurse manager have not been seeing eye to eye lately (verbal altercations both in the halls and in the cafeteria recently).Â The nurse manager approaches the Nurse and loudly states, â€œI am glad you are here.Â Just to let you know, the Incident Based Peer Review Committee is meeting tomorrow, and we are investigating your recent questionable behavior.Â I know you have made many recent medication errors and safety violations noted by the Patient Safety Committee.Â I also heard that you are dating that patient who was in Room 256B last month.Â I thought you would want to know this was happening. You could be in big trouble and probably fired.Â I donâ€™t have anything official to give you, but you better find a lawyer, although I doubt you can with this short notice.â€
