I recently started working at a LTC facility, this is my first nursing position out of school, for the most part things are going well. We have a resident who currently receives dialysis and has to travel for services. This person leaves in the AM and doesn't return to the facility until a few hours into the PM nurses shift. That is when the communication is relayed to the nurse about the events at dialysis. Recently I was getting caught up on my charting and the PM nurse received the pharmacy orders. She asked me why this certain med was ordered for this resident and I told her I had no idea what new medication she was talking about, I had not received any orders. Since this nurse would have just left the med and had me call the MD the next day, for some reason she refuses to contact MD's. I offered to make the call while she was sorting the meds. While she was standing NEXT to me I got the t/o from the MD with the dx and explained the order and gave her the order for her to place into the MAR. Since it was not my shift any longer I felt that it was not my responsibility to continue to act as the shift nurse. I had already helped her by contacting the MD during her shift. Well 5 days go by and I receive a call at home from this nurse asking be why the order wasn't placed in the MAR. I didn't know what to say considering that I was scheduled off the day after taking the t/o and then working a different wing the next 4 shifts scheduled. I feel she is trying to set me up for being responsible for this Med Error. She was aware of the order, she placed the med in the cart herself, and worked three shifts after. Fortunately the Social worker we have on staff is an RN and was replacing charts after MD rounds and observed me taking the t/o and giving it to the PM nurse. Thankfully she was paying attention and remembers this whole situation playing out. Do I have need to be worried about this med error falling on my lap? I no longer complete my charting at the nurses station, I have been finishing up in an empty office.
