Hello I have been an LPN for 2 years. I've been at my job my whole nursing career so far. Yesterday I received a call from my new DON stating I had made a med error the night before and I would need to come sign a med error form. I began thinking about this as I have never made such a error, never been in trouble at work, ever. I pride myself on doing my very best for my residents. I even serve as a charge nurse a few days per week. It panned out like this...that night I was on the heaviest hall in the building lots of behaviors, very sick people and very very needy families. One family includes several doctors they are very demanding with their loved one, naturally. I spent over an hour back and forth with them over orders got behind during my night pass. During this time I received an order for Coumadin. I followed that order charted wrote TO and reordered new labs everything but transcribing it to the MAR. It was the exact same orders as before. However, we box it off, so you have to rewrite it. I had forgotten to rewrite it in the MAR. So there for I made a med error according to my DON. I asked her why was it considered a med error? She said I gave without orders. But I did have orders, I gave the correct dose. I have clear documentation stating orders but I just forgot to write it in the MAR. Is this truly considered a med error? Should I sign this form? I messed up I own my mistake, but I had right dose, right patient...etc. any advice is greatly appreciated!
