Hello and good luck to all you nursing students. I have a question for you.
For any of you that are up to the point where you do a med pass in a hospital or nursing home.
What are they teaching you?
Of course we have the 5 r's.
But what moral or ethical oblication?
What about patient rights in regard to taking meds?
What about making sure they actually take the meds?
Im wondering, because we had a new grad - orientee who surprised me with the answers she had to these questions. I will give it away eventually, but I am so damn curious
about what the answers are across the allnurses.com board, for nursing students, and fresh grads! :smackingf
BTW, she is a SCCC Grad.
Thanks everyone for your input!
Sometimes God turns on the Sitcom Nurse Channel. Its like Comedy Central for Her.
Come on ... this isn't even an education issue ... any sane person (nurse or not) would find something wrong with what you described.
There's something fundamentally wrong with this persons thought process that needs to be addressed quickly before something goes terribly wrong when she/he is unsupervised.
