You won't lose your license. If it is found, your facility may get dinged during survey for passing a med from someone else's supply. It is cheating the other patient out of a dose though. Suggestion: If you work in a NH or SNF, you would have the MD, order you a replacement dose after explaining to the MD what happened. Then there would be no "theft" of a medication. Then I would chart replacement dose was ordered and obtained. If they have Medicaid, they can't order early, so it would really be cheating a patient if it was not replaced.
