I was just reading another thread of someone who got accused of diverting because of diluting morphine in a NS bag to administer. It reminded me of my rules for handling/administering controlled substances.1) I always unwrap packets in room, whether IV or PO. I want the pt to have NO QUESTION that I'm giving them the right med. I'll leave the wrappers on the counter until next time I make rounds in case they want to sneak a look.2) I only do a slow IV push for opiate naive pts. For the seasoned user, a faster push gives them the little rush that assures them they are getting the drug they want/need. I do this to instill confidence in the pt that I'm not stealing their med. 3)I always waste immediately unless it's a dire emergency and time is totally of the essence. I'll still bring the empty original container to temporarily leave on the counter. In short, I'm not here to change the world. If it's ordered, I give it. Controlled substances are treated by me as radioactive materials that can cause me damage.
