Hello Nurses, This might be long so bare with me!! I am quite distraught at the moment and need your help. I am a relatively new nurse that works in the Medical ICU. Working in the ICU as a new grad has been a huge learning curve but exciting. When it comes to the ICU you administer a lot of medications specifically pain medications. I was recently pulled into my managers office with concerns of my documentation with one specific IV pain med. The most prevalent pain med we give. The problem was that some how some way it had come up in my documentation that I had scanned the pain med as if I had given it in our e-chart (Prism), then later on it saying I pulled that med from the Med station making a time stamp. So Me documenting at 0400 that I gave the med, and then at 0430 it showing I took it from the med station. My manager has put me on leave because this has come up in my charting almost 5 times on different patients. I get very busy and caught up in my pt care but she wants an explanation of why I did this. The problem is I honestly don't know why I would scan a med before pulling it. If there is anyone out there that would have a reasonable / any explanation I really need your help!! I love my job and my pts and I would hate myself if I lost it over this. Thank you for all the help!
