during our first sem of hospital exposure, one of my classmate is unable to give the prior medication to her patient. the situation goes like this: our clinical instructors oriented us that in giving the medication to our patient we will consult them and get the chart of our patient for them to check if the medication prepared is right, in the case of my classmate she is able to tell the wrong room number of her patient to the incharge medication nurse which is also our classmate, then my classmate told our C.I. that she will give the medication and our C.I. say's asked her the room number room number of her patient without getting the chart of the patient.... as she went to the bed side of her patient, her patient was "shock" because the medications are all tablets and the patient is still a year and and a months old... my question is, which among them should be responsible for the act? the nurse on duty, the medication nurse or the C.I.?...................???
i need your opinion nurses around the globe..... :spin:
