    Which way is the right way?

    I haven’t been able to verify the documentation or lack of yet. They want me to go in and document it under my name so when I do so I’ll be able to see if there is an administration by that other nurse noted. Hopefully that’s the case but I’m not holding my breath. I can’t imagine them not going in and checking. I’m just so baffled that the administration isn’t documented because I really did watch the nurse do it and even helped them write the progress note along with it. I’ve honestly never pulled any type of drug for another nurse before and didn’t think much about it this time around since it was for my orientee but in hindsight I really should’ve been more mindful

    This is true..I completely understand that to my job it appears as though I pulled a med and never gave it which is what really upsets me because I physically watched the nurse give and sign for it so idk what happened maybe it didn’t save somehow who knows. I don’t think they would’ve ever said anything to me about me pulling it and another nurse giving it if the documentation was there. I guess I should really just count my blessings that my job is allowing me to do a late entry and write a statement. Thanks again for all the insight...this is another learning experience I had to get the hard way.

    Thanks for responding. I’m just confused because when you get a med from backup you need to pull it out under a patient’s name and the med comes in its package so as long as it’s documented as administered to that same patient in my mind there shouldn’t be an issue? I was orienting someone the other night and they couldn’t figure out their password for the backup so I pulled a narc and watched them administer it and document it but now I got a call saying it was never documented as given so I need to write a statement and put in a late entry. I’m very confused why the documentation that I 100% witnessed the orientee do is not longer in the system but now I’m also being told that I should’ve been the one to document the administration to begin with being as I pulled the med.

    I’m not sure if this is the correct forum I just need some clarity...to keep things short my question is, if a nurse pulls a med from back up like a Pyxis or Omnicell does that same nurse have to administer the medication? Are the rules different if depends whether it’s a narcotic or not? I know that as a nurse you never administer a med you personally did not draw up, pour, or pop but meds from the back up come in their packaging and are labeled.
  5. Hi there this is my first post so I hope I'm posting this correctly. I'm looking for some career advice. I started my first nursing job last year and accepted a full time position in a LTC facility. I continued to be full time for 9 months until I became so unhappy I needed a change. A few classmates of mine recommended their LTC facility so I applied and accepted a per diem position and chose to stay at my original job but go down to per diem. At first I was happier, my schedule was more flexible and being at two different places was giving me a chance to see more but after being at the new place for 2 months I'm finding myself dreading going into work. My patient load is 44 there whereas my first job I have max 32 and I just feel as if I cannot provide the care for my patients that I want. I've been looking up jobs recently and noticed a lot of the surrounding hospitals have openings. Im about to hit my 1 year mark as an RN and I'm considering applying so my main question is: will it look bad on my resume to have that I was full time at one place for 9 months, then went down to per diem and started a second job per diem which I then quit after 2 months? Also, I'm anxious about getting a hospital job and then being unhappy there too. There are moments when I'm at either job and I think "I absolutely love this profession" so I don't believe I'm in the wrong career that's why I think maybe LTC really isn't for me?
