I'm getting ready to graduate from practical nursing school in August and came across something that really bothered me the other day.My clinical instructor has us do med passes to our patients when we are there; however, we have been told while she is standing there to sign them off even prior to giving them I found this bothersome when I had a patient last week that was to have Dig at 0800 and she had me sign off on this and her other meds prior to even giving them to her. When I went to give them I checked her apical pulse for the second time after doing her head to toe at 0630, when it was low and it was only 54. I reported this to my instructor who then told me to put it in our classroom and wait an hour. I questioned the fact we had already marked it off in the computer as being given and wanted to know if there was a way this could be corrected. I was also very concerned because this patient was being discharged later that morning. I was told not to worry about it... That bothered me and then something similar happened with my other patient the previous day who needed breathing txs q4 hours and I had to sign off on her 1200 breathing tx as being completed when she refused it since it was so close to lunch...This has bothered me and I was telling a couple of my good friends who are also in my class about what happened and they were mortified to hear that our group is made to sign off our meds prior to giving them... I am very tempted to go to the nursing program coordinator and tell her what is going on. I don't feel comfortable doing it that way any longer with those 2 instances occurring any longer. Am I doing the right thing reporting this? This instructor has a somewhat lackluster attitude about some thngs and doesn't do a very good job teaching either when the majority of the class fails her tests...I was reprimanded last week due to a med error with her not verifying the narcotic count for Clorazepate for my patient and it was 1 off (it showed 1 too many on hand in the log book as opposed to the medication itself). I was written up by the facility it was at and will go in my permanent school record. My instructor is more upset that this error is her first in 10 years...All of this has cause me a great deal of anxiety since last Friday and would appreciate any advice you could share.Thank you.
