I had a patient with CHF. On days she got bad and was sent to the hospital. I recieved a call that evening requesting info on why she had not recieved her diuretic upon checking true there had been no documentation for the medicine for the past 5 days. I reported this to my DON who had me check into the orders, the deliveres from pharmacy, and speak to the QMA's who had been assigned to meds on the 5 days.
Well the lady died 2 days later.
I feel rotten in all my investigation I cannot prove she got that medicine and my supervisors have order no one to say anything regarding this patient for fear information will get out and lead to a law suit
Any ideas out there
