I was reading another post about a nurse who made a med error. It got me thinking about my new job as an LPN and how easy it really is to make an error and how easy it would be to not report it.
So, what happens to the nurse who does report an error? What about the patient?
I have oriented for 2 days and will have 2 more days before I am on my own. There is so much info to learn for the day to day stuff. How will I ever know what to do if something out of the ordinary, like a med error, happens?
But, so far, I really like my job. Great coworkers really make all the difference.
