You need to do something about this right away. If you have signed wastes for this nurse you are going to be investigated as well as him because it is highly suspicious looking that these meds are being pulled out twice and one wasted. Even one incidence of this is highly suspicious. You will be investigated too when pharmacy notices this, and they will.
You have put your license on the line.
I spent several years in the ER and now ICU. I have seen doctors cry, firemen cry, EMS, nurses and all the rest. At first it is hard to control your emotions, but as time goes on you learn to get the job done, then cry. I gotta say, there is nothing more gut renching then seeing a fireman cry. But I have nothing but respect for those who cry.
Most of us agree that when you don't cry anymore then you should probably get out
Where can I learn about how to use stopcocks? Sounds like a good idea
You did everything right. Look for a new job.
Can someone tell me how to block out a person that you don't want to see their postings anymore?
I'm so sorry you and your family had to go through this horrible experience. I hope you are able to find comfort and healing. Sharing your experience has opened up an educational discussion that will have positive impact on many. We still have so much to do to make healthcare better for all.
I think the patients whose lives have been saved by me, and most of my nursing friends, would say that nursing is a knowledge based job. I often forget how important our job is until something great happens with a really sick patient. The thing is, in our job we can be titrating several life saving drips, watching for lethal rhythms and checking for air leaks in chest tubes and other assorted things, while cleaning up poopy bottoms and emptying the garbage.
I think I make pretty darn good money too.
