    Med Error

    AJJKRN - You don't think I understand the seriousness of what I did? I am still not over it! I got extremely lucky that she was to get the exact med and exact dosage as the other client. I know that! It doesn't take away from how serious of an outcome this could have been. It was a psychotropic IM to be given every 30 days, once you put that in, it can't be undone! If you don't think I have questioned my ability to be a nurse you are dead wrong there too! I am not a perfect being, God help you if you think you are especially with your condescending attitude. You don't need to beat me up, because I'm already doing it!

    Med Error

    I'm a newer nurse (little over a year) and I made a med error. It was my own fault, I didn't follow the five rights. I gave another patient an injection mentioned for another patient. I got lucky, the patient I gave the injection to was to get the exact same injection only not for a couple days yet; so there were no adverse effects for the client. I notified my supervisor immediately and still am sick over it. I am petrified that they are going to report me to my BON. The weird part is they still let me work the whole day in the field giving injections, I resigned at the end of the day because I believed they were going to terminate me, though they said our director would reach out to me by the end of the week. Would they call me before they made the complaint? If they do, what would my consequences be?
