Your post really is not clear. First off, as noted above ,morphine should be written in mg's, as ml's could be any strength in one ml, and there are many variations of mg per ml for morphine. And someone gave this patient 30ml's of Morphine at what strength per ml? In my practice, I have never seen a .1ml order for morphine. I suppose it could be that it is 10mg per ml or some other high mg multi use vial, which is so dangerous for a lot of reasons...if the goal is 1mg of morphine and you have 10mg per ml, then .1 would make some sense, but dangerous, and needs clarification!! So whomever took and noted that order, whomever verified that order on the med sheet, and co-signed off on the med sheet was in the wrong for not clarifying the order to begin with. And any order that is written in ml's you NEED to verify the strength, and get a clarification, and ultimately get the order in the mg's that the doctor is wanting for this patient. However, that is all water under the bridge. I would think that whomever decided this patient needed 29 or 30 mls of morphine (and lets just assume it is 1mg per ml) gave this person a heckuva lot of morphine (and to think of 29 or 30mls of 10mg per ml of morphine is outrageous). Not to mention to add Ativan to the mix. In your practice, make sure that you always, always clarifiy orders that need to be, and really WATCH your mg per ml strength in a multi-use vial format.
