...6 rights of med administration blatantly not followed.
is this the crux of your errors...that you haven't been following the rights of med admin?
i am seeking to understand, and think the pp had very wise advise in encouraging you to truly consider the source(s) of your mistakes.
as for your telephone conversation with the dr re demand dosing, i know you told her pt's husband wanted to talk to her...
but did you ever ask her to confirm the order you desired for your pt?
i guess i am not understanding why you would essentially 'prescribe' a med w/o implicit authorization?
again, i seek to understand your thought process, since it seems to negate everything we were taught in nsg school.
i am glad your employers are being supportive of you.
whatever refresher education you may receive, the bottom line is the "aha" moment needs to come from you.
only then will you take the necessary steps in 'redeeming' yourself in ensuring these type errors do not reoccur.
best of everything, op.
it does get better.
