Ok so you made a mistake and you learned from it. Why are some of you still going on and on. to the OP, its difficult going from a rehab to acute care. If you feel overwhelmed and it doesn't seem to get any easier go talk to your manager about it or the person who set up your preceptor/orientation. There are alot of people who want to save money and stuff or just as a convenience to them during thier shift. But the bottom line is, waste what you are not using with a witness, and don't stick it in your pockets. as to the aide who had a question, No your not supposed to borrow from someone else but I won't say it doesnt happen. it is not a recommended practice. The nurse who is allowing you to do this is risking their license on a med error.
