So I had my first code called on my my patient last night. Without going into a lot of details, a strike code was called but basically the patient had too much pain medication (she was on Q2H dilaudid).
Her doctor previously rounded before shift change, saw she was very lethargic & had pin-point pupils. Didn't order anything but changed a few other things.
When shift change came we did bedside report & she was acting different from her usual self so a code was called. When I called the doctor he was upset that the shift coordinator wanted to transfer her to the ICU & ordered Narcan.
*I* was pissed because HE saw her & could've order Narcan when he SAW her! I saw the doctor today & he said not to call a code. It took all of me not to say anything back at him.
The patient wasn't transferred, the Narcan helped her & she is fine today.
