It was a simple easy mistake that didn't lead to any harm. I personally would not have filed an incident report and I see no reason for notifying the MD. I would have taken the med out under the right patient's name and then "returned" the med for the "wrong" patient.Same. I would not have filed an incident report in this instance (there was no "incident", the correct med was given to the correct patient) and I most definitely would not have notified the MD. Why would the MD need to be notified? It had zero to do with him/her.
