SO I just worked a 12 hr noc in the ACU, besides the middle which was pretty busy it was good. At 0600 ish another nurse's pt started vomiting what looked like stool, severe back pain, central tremor, chills and fever. So myself, the primary RN and the rapid response RN were all in there for the better part of an hour trying to figure out what was wrong.
Well my pts were all sleeping. But I forgot synthroids for 2 pt and a cardiac med at 0600. My plan was to give it about 0630-0700. And since I realized it I fell super guilty, I know that we are all human and that the next nurse will notice the that it wasn't give and it will be technically 2 hrs late, but no harm should come to him. And tomorrow I will apologize to the day RN.
Does anyone else feel super guilt if you forget things or is it just me.
