    Hey all. I'm new here too, but I just wanted to say wow, Mimi, that's pretty harsh treatment for a single med error, especially one that did no harm. I've made my share in my career, and have been counselled, yes, but never terminated! Maybe it's for the best. I hope you find work somewhere that appreciates its nurses!

    [B]That really was harsh. I graduated one year ago as an LVN and am working on the same floor of small county hospital where I worked as a CNA. Our manager keeps posting reminders that getting a notice in our box of an error is not disciplinary, just a way to trend and remind us all to keep a heads up! Sometimes if a med is given 4 hrs early it can be dangerous depending on the last time the med was given, did you notice the error immediately, call the doctor and watch (while documenting) for s/sx of overdose? I have found that the mistakes I have made are the ones I truly will never make again, what scares me is what mistakes I will make next!

    Welcome to All nurses! Your being let go sounds a little fishy to me too and I'm only a student. Good luck in finding another job!
