    God forbid that a nurse should ask for 10 minutes to regroup at a moment when she is overwhelmed.The fact that this is even a question demonstrates just how powerless we can become on tbe workplace.There is nothing wrong with taking ten minutess to get organized as long as no harm came to any patient.

    "No." was the only right answer, despite the family's feelings. I also doubt the patient's question was serious to start out with. It's more likely that he was amusing himself ...or possibly expressing frustration with the futility of some aspects of his treatment.

    I'd keep this situation in mind in case you need an example of how you are an advocate for patient safety. You might need this example for a future interview when you become an RN. Remember what you did was a good thing!

    The other med tech might be mad at you but that is his or her issue.

    A nurse can't be "annoyed"? I confess to regular feelings of being put out, annoyed, peeved, ticked etc as well as being joyful, grateful, sad, and all the other emotions that make us human.
    What is so wrong with a nurse focusing on her own emotional needs and pondering important questions after work?

    I think you did the right thing. I don't quite understand what your scope of practice is as a Med Tech, but the only thing you did was bring it to the attention of the nurse, who then took it upon themselves to get the order clarified and the extra dose discontinued. Better to error on the side of caution. I wouldn't stress, you did the right thing and sound like you are on your way to becoming a safe, conscientious nurse.
