I'm an RN student one month away from graduation. Very recently a classmate of mine told me that while in clinical they have done the following:They're in a patient's room with morning meds. The patient refuses a med, saying they just don't want to take it. The student replies, "Fine, but I have others here that you need to take..." such as their ABX etc... the patient indicates compliance and the student proceeds to open up all their meds (including the one(s) they have refused), place them in a cup, and then hand this cup to the patient. The patient takes all the meds not know that the one(s) they have refused are among them.I was pretty appalled when I heard this. To me it seems like a violation of the patient's right to make their own health care decisions. Your thoughts? Does it matter what the med is, what the reason is, or whether or not the person has dementia?
