It's true that I cannot give the patient her home meds without an order. However, I can get an order from my nephro doc for pain meds at the unit or an order to give a home med while on dialysis.
I am surprized that a HD nurse let you take a breakfast tray in his or her space! This area should be clean to sterile. Lots of risk of infection, especially dealing with catheters. We always have D50 for low BS.
NO EATING IN MY UNIT!
Hope I helped,
I was Tele Nurse too... :redbeathe
