I work in LTC where meds are in packets and grouped accdg to the times they are to be given. My partner is quite new and is assigned to meds. She left early and i had to finish the med pass. BEfore going home, i check every bin to see if everything has been given. I chanced upon a pack of Septra DS scheduled for 5pm that day that was not detached in the strip. SO i took it and gave it to the resident. WHen i came back to sign the record, there was a signature there already. I don't know now if she had signed it by mistake or if she had taken a PRn packet of Septra ds and gave it earlier. I endorsed this to the next shift but did not get the chance to contact my partner anymore. ANy side effects of having an extra dose of septra? Should they hold the next dose if ever? Resident's order is septra ds bid x 5 days. help!
