Was at a call yesterday morning for an actively dying Pt. Family around the bedside, tearful, Pt gurgling more than my old coffee maker.
Yep, there's a day old order for Atropine prn on our chart. So, off I go the the facility nursing station to ask when it was last given. Ooops, none on site, and the NH pharmacy usually doesn't make it's morning deliveries until 1100--it's now a little past 0500. :angryfire
Atropine isn't the only med that this happens with, either.
