I don't dispense medications. Why don't the docs get this??? Yesterday a doc wrote an order for "take home" zofran.
I gave him the zofran( which now I regret, being my name is shown as removing it in the pyxis) and stated " I'm not allowed to dispense medications".
He said" Oh, you are new here.... I see.
I said" I've been in nursing for 7 seven years and I don't dispense medications because it is against the law for me to do so". Then, I walked away.
Well, he had a nasty attitude the rest of the shift. I don't care!!!!
I don't care what the nurses do, that is them. I'm not a pharmacist, so I do not dispense.
