An adult patient I discharged today was given prescriptions that she flat out told me she couldn't afford... One of the prescriptions was 600mg ibuprofen PO q6h PRN pain control. I discharged her, she signed the paperwork and I charted her out of the computer system. She was waiting to sign out at the register (billing papers) and I felt bad that she couldn't even afford ibuprofen and it looked like she was in pain, I looked in my backpack and I had 3 200mg ibuprofen (generic in original container) and I walked up to the register where she was and told her that she could have my ibuprofen and gave her the bottle with the 3 pills inside. Even though ibuprofen is OTC medicine, I now think (that I've thought about it) that I was in the wrong for giving it to her and that I could be in trouble with my employer and the state board. I am planning on telling my director what happened tomorrow, I feel like me telling her exactly what I did and why will make me feel better about the situation. Nobody will ever know it happened if I don't say anything, but I think I should self report it.
