I always understood the policy at our school to be "you can only give IV push meds with a licensed person" UM I learned today that you can only give IV push with the instructor!
I was helping an RN and she asked me to draw up this med. I drew it up and then she said, "you can give it." I said "me?" b/c it wasn't my client and then she said yes and then after you give it I will let you tell me why *I* wouldn't give it. So...dum-de-dumdum I give it! Then she asked me "so why wouldn't *I* give that med?" I said "b/c I drew it up". DING DING DING I was right! LOL She runs to the instructor to brag on how well I did...Uh oh! Here comes my instructor red faced and shaky and asks me about it. I really didn't think I did wrong but I did! BIG TIME!!! Now, I am thinking she is going to give me a ZERO for part of my grade!
SO, my last clinical of the semester and my first screw up since day one...I am glad that I didn't kill anyone but gosh, I feel like CRAPOLA!
