    Psych nurses don't know medical?

    There is definitely a stigma. I work a chaotic mixture of both: medicine psych! Gives me a run for my $ every day LOL.

    Seniority and preferential scheduling

    Oh god isn’t that the truth??
  3. I’m positive that her hospital uses “COWs” or has access to them. I can’t imagine being so cocky or forgetful or WHATEVER SHE WAS that I wouldn’t scan the med & the patient.... and monitor them after giving the med even? But what do I know... lol.
  4. And she didn’t scan the med or the patient. I mean, good god....
  5. As much as we’ve all made med errors, this goes above & beyond that. She skipped over several NECESSARY steps & a patient died. im sure she feels bad but damn.

    What do you think are some of the best places to work in psych?

    Yes 100%. We all have duress buttons, all patient rooms / hallways have video cameras (& we have staff that specifically monitor the feed at all times), we have a large code team, & all have been trained specifically for dealing with situations that may or may not escalate.

    What do you think are some of the best places to work in psych?

    Agreed! I work inpatient med-psych at a large teaching hospital & we have great staff.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Yeah, she overrode/skipped/ignored several procedures. I mean, when that happens one should expect disciplinary action at the very least!

    No, not even a little bit.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    How about just the ordered amount then? You really think it makes sense to require a witness every single time you pull a CS? Ativan, Morphine, Methadone etc really require 2 people? man, when I worked inpatient hospice that would’ve been impossible. Like I said, waste of time & the implication that one can’t be trusted would make me think twice about working anywhere that requires this.

    Nurse Charged With Homicide

    Doesn’t seem very time-effective to have a witness every time you pull a med...that’s ridiculous & sounds like the higher-ups don’t trust their own staff. I don’t know, just seems odd to me.

    Do others have to have a witness simply to pull meds (controlled obviously) from the Pyxis, etc? We don’t, never have anywhere I’ve worked...only if we’re going to waste some of it of course.

    Advice for potential RN

    Sure! I am going into my 5th year of nursing, & have branched out into Med Psych nursing. I know that isn’t too common, but my teaching hospital has a unit like that & I have very much enjoyed it/the patients. It’s definitely challenging, medical aspects aside.

    Another Tragedy at Vanderbilt

    But that isn’t the only thing she did that resulted in the patient’s death. That was just one in a number of things. The CMS report is quite disturbing.
