I'm officially fired from my first RN job today. My manager suspended me starting from last Thursday due to my medication error, which happened on Sunday, 25th. I made two errors during my orientation period, and those two errors are something that didn't teach in nursing school.
The first incident happened around 4 weeks ago. This patient was admitted due to SOB and was getting better. When I was providing medication to the patient, the doctor walked in and assess the patient for a bit. I stayed and listed to what the doctor said to the patient. Doctor said that patient is getting better and told me to walk the patient around the unit. So I agreed and walked the patient. On the half way, patient started showing SOB and wanted to sit down. I called help and many nurses helped me to sit the patient and escort the patient back to the room using a rolling chair. One of the nurses pointed out that I should grab a portable oxygen tank with me when walking this type of patient.
