Im a newbie going into my fourth week of orientation. Some days, I seem to make really stupid mistakes. TOday I gave a med at 10a that was supposed to be given at 1op. all of the meds on the sheet said 10;00. However, red means pm and black means am.
No harm done to the pt., thank god, but I felt ridiculous. My preceptor is now compelled of course to probably not leave my side.
I was just gaining a bit of autonomy, then I screwed up!!
Anyway, I just thought if anyone could share an experience or tell me how bad of an error this is... :uhoh21:
I feel like a dumass!
