Don't do it. If you truly made an error it should have been caught long ago by agency chart review. If their review process is lacking or absent that is not your problem. How can you even remember what happened? I can't remember patients from the start of my shift. Unless you were negligent, and you have full recall of the situation, I would not do this.
I hate to nitpick but there is no nurses' oath. I happen to agree with "do no harm", but it is not an oath that nurses take.
I love taking care of people. Being a parent taught me that men are just as caring as compassionate as women, just in their own way. To me nursing is the same. Regardless of sex, we all have our own perspective and paradigm of caring, which is the core of nursing.
Thanks you two. I have since learned that CO has in fact started legislation to join the e compact. However, we have a part time legislature so they can't address it until January.
I see where the first two posters are coming from, but I disagree. "Evil prevails when good (wo)men fail to act". (Sorry for the implied sexism here but this is an old quote.) A call to the ethics hotline would be indicated I think. Even though this is small potatoes she is stealing from the hospital. This is probably not the only thing she is doing wrong. As a manager, I would want her out of the organization ASAP. If she really has the blessing of the ACNO then the ANCO has no idea of what she is doing. But only do this if you can anonymously.
Best of luck. Thank God you stopped skimming at least. Addiction is a disease, this is a great step. Get all the help you can. I would just come clean and take every opportunity to get better.
