I stopped responding to this post a while back because I got tired of the rancor and name calling. My daddy used to say "opinions are like rectums in that everybody has one!" I might add that just because one has an opinion doesn't make it right.  My daddy also used to say some people are just "Right Fighters" which means they would rather be right than happy. Or they bite back because they don't like it when people don't think highly of them. 

One last quote from my daddy is "You wouldn't worry so much about what people thought of you if you realized how rarely they did."

Slow down

If you are coming close to making a mistake every day you work, that suggests you are rushing. When its busy its very easy to think "I have to get that done" or when someone is demanding of your time, feeling like you have to be in three different places at once. 

Its ok to say to the person demanding something "I need to finish what I am doing, give me X minutes"

I do pass meds carefully, I may have been a little dramatic in saying "I come close every day" (but then you have to define what that means)  I was pointing out the multiple warnings and pop up boxes most of us face make you immune to reading them, I have to wonder if any actual floor nurses were asked for their input

When I read this, I went “Hey! Ouch!” until I realized that you are unfortunately right. We have to buddy-system administering insulin because there are a lot of sloppy nurses. The doctors don’t get a buddy to sign their insulin prescription— we just have faith that they are checking carefully.

No we don't.  The pharmacist is the second pair of eyeballs.  And in a hospital, the nurse is the third pair.
