Very rarely. It's too much trouble and causes bad feelings among co-workers. Would normally call the nurse at home after researching on a missed dose.
Me too. Like FS said, it causes bad feelings amongst us, and if there were a way that I could call them or do a little checking and find the answer, I would rather go thatt route. As nurses our job is difficult just keeping our patients safe and on the right track, and docs happy, and supervisors and family ...
If it were something that would have to be documented, I'll do it - but a lot of times your shift is just so busy and if you have a patient or two crashing on you, something just goes without getting documented.
Kind of the "do unto others", if I were the nurse, I would appreciate the chance to say that I gave it.
