    All of those that have been posted are correct. For my program we were taught that documentation was the 6th, but that various hospitals were adopting various versions

    Yeah, what nightcrawler said. I think it just depends on your textbook/instructor/facility.

    We were also taught an unofficial ninth: Right equipment (meaning the correct type of syringe etc.) But the 8 were the "official" ones.

    Edited to add: Our 8 rights are:

    Right Drug
    Right Dose
    Right Client
    Right Route
    Right Time
    Right Documentation
    Right to refuse
    Right indication
