    I was involved in a situation where I went to work as staff relief personnel for a nursing home. Little did I know that the nursing home was under investigation by the state. I worked with over 20 patients that night for a 12 hour shift. Upon rounds I noticed that one of my patient's was having shortness of breath. I applied 2 liters of oxygen via NC which relieved the shortness of breath. I immediately called the doctor and left a message for the doctor to call the facility to obtain an order on whether to continue oxygen therapy or transfer patient to hospital. Unfortunately the patient expired that night due to natural causes. Was I wrong to adminster the oxygen?
