I sure could do with some advice or be pointed in the right direction. I've been an LVN for over 25 years. Of that 25 plus years, I've been trained & have practiced 16 years in ICU, CCU, CVCU's, 2 years ER, a member of an MICU for 5 years and most recently 2 1/2 years in an IV therapy department. I've taken 3 different IV workshop courses and received 3 different certificates of IV training. I was trained the basics of inserting IV's while in school, received additional IV training with regards to the safe admin. of IVP medications in the ICU setting, while being trained to work my first ICU, have maintained my ACLS for the past 16 years. To put it bluntly, I've been mixing and admin. IV medication most of my career. In addition, I've been giving (without incident) IVP medications. So...Whats up? Someone reported me to the board (first time !!!). I'm accused of mixing and administering IV medications without proper training, skills and without adq. supervision, as required. Spoke with the investigator. Was told that data collected indiciates everything is OK except that I need to provide proof that I was trained to administer IVP medications? Good grief. 25 years is a long time ago, but I could have sworn I was trained in LVN school to give IV pushes. I know I was further trained in giving IV push medications when I first trained to work my first ICU. Maybe I should have, but I never gave it much thought to pushing IV meds (with regards to violation of the nurse practice act). Come on now, when a nurse is working ICU, it's your job to push IV meds along with a lot of stuff thats much more dangerous. I've looked at the nurses practice act and can't seem to find anything that says anything definitive. If there's anyone out there who knows something I'm missing or can point me in the right direction, it would be very much appreciated. I've got a dead line of the 22'd to fax my response. I'll check this thread up till that day, so your advice won't be in vain.
