Well said Augigi!
I agree with Augigi. Slow down, take a deep breath and remember not only the 5 rights, but the 3 checks.
1. Check the order
2. Check the med when you pull it out.
3. Check the med again before you give it (or put it in patient's cup).
No matter how stressed/rushed you are you must do this.
You are doing great and are admitting your errors, now stop the pattern and make that error a thing of the past.
Remember, we've all made these errors, but we must learn from them to avoid in the future.
Keep up the good work!
