I just have to vent!!! I'm at work today and I hear Dr. A complain to Dr. B that he received a written reprimand for using an unapproved abreviation for a drug he wrote for a patient. Then he proceeds to blame the nurse who took the order off because she didn't call him to clarify the order. Now...this order was for morphine IV but he wrote MS 2mg IV. We have notices plastering the nurses station and in the charts showing the doctors unapproved abbreviations, but this particular doctor blames the nurses!!!! This is no new doctor, he's been at this hospital for years. UHGGGGG
Of course I, being unable to keep my mouth shut, said, "good, maybe next time you won't make the same mistake"
Thanks for listening...I feel better.
