I'm a fairly new nurse of 2 years. I have question to ask the nurses with more experiences. I had a very rough 2 days at wok last week. I had 2 admissions and 8 patients, so that's 10 in all. I also had a fall at the beginning of the shift, plus a very difficult family member. The patient wasn't difficult, but the family member was Both of my patients me in around 10 at night. It was just so busy that I didn't get to start both of my admissions by 12 am. The next day I found out that one patient was complaining that she hadn't receive her insulin night. Her blood sugar was good so she didn't needed insulin.... Another patient complained about not getting his medicine either. The DON told me in a meeting that we can put in certain medications as long as it is approved by the previous doctor at the hospital where the patient is coming from. Im a rehab nurse. Then we can override it. I just don't want to put any medications order in and giving it to the patient without the attnding physician at the rehab center approving it.Is this out of the scope of practice?
