I recently found a med error and followed through with a med error report ( I am the charge nurse for that shift). There was no harm done but the potential was there. The nurse who made the error was devastated even though I spoke to her about it in a non threatening way and told her about errors I had made in the past. I felt so bad after, seeing how hard she was taking it. Fellow charge nurses have since made it known that I "over reacted" and felt I should have just let it go seeing there was no harm done.
Did I over react?? I don't care to have my license suspended for non-compliance.
