    Giving Tylenol to patient with elevated alt/ast

    AST was 75 and ALT was 52 the order has already been placed a couple days ago and she has been taking it. The elevated levels were a new finding that morning but the medication never got d/c’d
  2. Hi guys, i made my first med error yesterday and feel terrible. I work on a combined OB floor and had a patient who had elevated AST and ALT (75 and 52) . The doctor had Tylenol and Motrin ordered for pain control after her c-section, and so I gave both every 6 hours, not realizing that I shouldn’t be giving Tylenol!!! i let the MD know (I gave two doses, 6 hours apart) and they discontinued the order after that. Should I also alert my supervisors? The only person I alerted were the doctors and the day nurse coming on shift.
