New nurse forgets!

  1. 0
    I just started in the MICU and it was my third day off orientation - I recieved a post-code and after starting multiple pressors I got a verbal to start Propofol if needed. Next thing you know I'm starting it but forgot to scan it and put it in the lockbox- didnt realize until the next day! Feel so guilty ! Has anything like this ever happened to anyone else???

    Unfortunately, I don't know what the lockbox is (other than the place where Al Gore proposed to hide our social security), and so I can't really provide an answer to this.

    Hahahaha.

    Seriously though, what is a lock box? We go through so much propofol I know for a fact people sometimes forget to scan it without consequences. Fentanyl or versed, though, would be a different story.
