I remember one time , that looking back now prolly wasnt so major, but at the time, MI city!
for me that is...
I was working on a respiratory unit, with a fellow RN on a team of 8 patients, I did the meds, I asked her if she would hook up a combivent treatment for me in a certain room ,and she took it , said sure, signed off and went on in the room , then she came out , got called to do something, so I went in there and there was no neb going, no combivent in the nebulizer mask nothing, so i asked the patient what was going on (she was alert and oriented x3) and she said "oh that nurse brought me my medicine and I took it...SHE drank the nebulizer treatment..
I was paralyzed with fear, may seem silly but when ur a new grad you fear losing your license big time, and plus I was the one who was supposed to be giving meds , so I figured I would get in huge heaps of trouble, anyway , long story short this lady had the coolest dr ever, we called him, he laughed and asked if it did anything for her? haha he told us not to worry about it that he caught a patient sucking on a fleet bottle once!!!
