Im a new nurse less than a years experience.While counting narc with my relief he stated percocet count was off by one pill.I work the same cart daily in a ltcf. The narc was scheduled. An Im the prime suspect.
the booked looked like this so i see why im a suspect
1/1/12 1given 26left my signature
1/1/12 1given 25left my signature---- i accidentally signed twice so i put a SINgle line and initialed then transcribed 25 again by mistake. and called out 25 during the count which was right on the card but wrong in the book because i never signed the 25 th pill out just the 26th because the pill was already missing.The oncoming nurse & his relief caught it but didnt report it . So when i returned count was still off. I didnt catch it in the am count either & no one said anything to me.Finally caught the error when counting at 1500 with another nurse.
Rn supervisor looks a says he gets it sceduled at 0900 & 2100 they forgot to sign. I go "oooo," but really it was "Noooo" because that nurse said he didnt give it he forgot. So now we have a missing percocet for real.And little ole me is suspended & drug tested.
My question is at least 3 nurses had those keys, why only me getting test & suspended and what are my rights.Will the bon or dea be notified? Could i be inpsioned for one 2.5/325 percocet. Help Me!
