i'm a new grad nurse in a med tele or med surg unit. it's my 2nd month of training and i've been taking the full load, which is 7 patients. i have a question about hanging IV antibiotics. in one of my shifts, i had several patients that needed IV antibiotics. my unit policy states that we can give medications one hour before and after but i was so overwhelmed that i decided to give the zosyn two hours before just so i can catch up with all my other tasks because i had 4 patients with achs accuchecks. is that okay?
also, aside from vanco, what antibiotics (and medications) should i give on time?
