    iluvivt got a reaction from Elaine M in Med error   
    Well, how much muscle tissue did the patient have? If it was a fair amount I would not worry If it was a 90 year made up of skin and bones then I may worry. Either way, please keep this in perspective as while it was an error it was not a  horrendous one as the medication still went into muscle tissue.

    iluvivt got a reaction from Daisy4RN in Curiosity Killed the Cat and Got 50 Hospital Employees Fired   
    I am too concerned about my goals and keeping my life on track that I could care less about any patient, celebrity or not, that I am not directly taking care of. I have a position that I am asked for consults all the time or in other words my opinions on the best evidenced practice and/or policy so I need to go into charts that I may not ever touch the patient.I protect myself by documenting why I am in the chart.

    iluvivt got a reaction from RNfaster in Robot tells man he'll be dead in hours   
    This is far from deplorable! First of all it is not a robot telling a patient and their family that the end of life is near, it is a doctor using a  modern tool.People hear bad news over the phone and internet all over the world.Instead of being grateful to the hospital and the specialist using this technology someone is looking to criticize the medical community.How about this: We do not invest in the technology and bring a specialist to the beside faster or bring one to you that you may not ever have bc access to. I am so sick of hypersensitive people that think everything must be done their way so their sensitive little feelings are nurtured.They should be grateful their good and kind family member was taken care of in the last few days of their life and offered some dignity and hopefully a peaceful passing. We just lost our dad and it was long and hard but our family was filled with gratitude that we were blessed with four caregivers that were so gentle,devoted and kind to our dad.We made sure they knew it too.

    iluvivt got a reaction from Orca in Lost job over HIPAA violation   
    I think its absolutely awful of them to fire you for this. They could have just given you a verbal or written warning because really what harm came to the patient.You know what is going to happen to you now..... A Big Nothing. You will not lose your license over this either as Nursing Boards have much bigger fish to fry. Learn from it and move one and  please stop stressing because it's not necessary.

    iluvivt got a reaction from latebloomer74, LPN in Tennessee Nurse RaDonda Vaught - Legal Perspectives of Fatal Medication Error   
    I agree. All this nurse had to do to prevent this egregious error was to be able to read. If she did not know the drug, it's action, it's dosage, or its administration parameters she could have looked them up or called for assistance. I can't get over the fact that she did not even read the box, the vial, the computer screen... NOTHING stopped her, so that tells me she is either very stupid or unbelievably reckless. I believe she was totally reckless and practicing nursing fast and loose I can't even believe she is able to practice right now.

    iluvivt got a reaction from TriciaJ, RN in I’m being investigated by the BON!   
    Not going to sugarcoat this = these are very serious allegations.A few things missing here! Where are the "missing narcotics"? Four months of lack of charting narcotics properly is a long time! Did you check them out and then not document they were administered? If not documented you must know it will count as not given and that make you look like you pocketed them.I can't see how you will not end up in a monitoring program with restrictions on your ability to administer controlled.Good thinking to hire a lawyer.You must remember nursing boards are there to protect the public from negligent nurses so they will not be lenient because you learned a lesson. Honestly, how did you let this this happen because this will effect your ability to practice encumbered for years and years.. I wish you peace and hope it works out well for you
