right I didn't realise this post had got so huge. I guess i should clarify things.
Firstly thank you to all of you that said positive things :) and yes I forgot what name I was using haha
To the people calling me a snitch, The drug was a controlled drug transdermal patch and what was on my patient the day I went in certainly did not match the prescription sheet and there were adverse effects on my patient. Do I turn a blind eye to that? No I certainly can not. I take huge offence to being called nosy. My patient was given a double dose of what she was meant to have and i rectified the situation. When it comes to controlled drug errors it's pretty serious and has to be reported. May I also add my co-worker wasn't named in my incident report our reports are anon. so whoever told her the incident had been reported must have known she had done it. I didn't feel good about doing it I genuinely felt guilty. I previously turned a blind eye to an IV antibiotic error that could of potentially been quite bad if not caught and didn't report it, it was dealt with on the floor by myself and the case manager but theres only so many times that can happen without patient safety being seriously compromised.
Thankfully I now no longer work in that ward.
@CSARmedic you really have your priorities as a nurse all wrong if you see patient safety as an escape route for nurses.
