Okay, so I just need to ***** for a second. Last night my charge nurse gave a double dose of Ketamine and a benadril to a pt. I'm not saying she gave him 2 when he gets one to 2. She gave him twice the dose he was supposed to get. I witnessed all of this because it took place at the nurses station. So, because I don't like calls in the morning asking me what the hell happened and why the pt was over sedated, I reported what happened to the oncoming charge nurse. (And yes, when stuff happens at night and they want to know what is going on they call me; not the charge nurse.) She also had me write down what was given and when so that she could give it to the ADON. Then at 2 I get told that the ADONs response was "Tell him to mind his own business." Now we don't get along real well anyway because of past issues, but I would think that when something like that happens the people in charge would want to know. Ketamine isn't a tylenol or antacid. This is heavy duty stuff. I just don't know what to do anymore. The nurse that I work with has already killed one person and it's been close calls on a few others and every time I tell them the stupid crap she does I get in trouble because of it. She doesn't even get told not to do it again it's just completely ignored. I just don't know what to do anymore.
And just to add to my fun I just found out the ADON will be my charge nurse on Tuesday. ***. Is it to late for my mother to abort me? cause I'm thinking I could convince her.
