Mistakes you'll never make, again.

  1. 0 I thought a good topic for today would be changes in your practice due to things that have happened.

    I'll start with my most recent work experience.

    I don't care anymore what the pt says, even if they tell me they are currently on their period (unless there's documentation of hysterectomy) every female that comes in is getting a pregnancy test done prior to X-ray.

    While it wasn't directly related to me, I did triage on pt and hcg wasn't done prior to X-ray.. Even X-ray people question Pts and they may not be honest.

    About 4 years ago I put the name of the wrong hospital on a resume. Embarrassing! (Didn't get a call back either, wonder why?)

    -Pushed reglan too fast. Pt. had reaction. For now on, I'm pushing ALL IV meds slow, unless I'm in a Code or something.

    I RECEIVED IV Reglan too fast. That sucked. My hands got " stuck" . They looked like little claws. Good times.

    When I was a new grad there was an order for Demerol 50mg/Vistaril 25mg IVP. And I gave it. Pharmacy caught the order and then saw that I had given it. Vistaril IV big no-no. No harm came to the pt but I definitely never did THAT again.

    I will NEVER assume that a female is not pregnant.
