18?!? I have heard 7 and use just that.

Right patient, route, time, dosage, refuse, etc.

I have never heard of 18. I have only had experience with the five and then adding documentation as a possible 6th.

Right drug, dose, patient, time and route...then documentation.

wont fall for what bro? good try? im just asking maybe someone here already knew the 18 R's in giving medication, before there were only 5, then became 10 R's, now i just heard from a lecture that there are 18Rights (too bad i forgot to write it down) that nurses must check b4 giving meds, im not trying to prove anything here.

are you sure it doesn't have something to do with the patient's rights? I know there are multiple of those...not to sound dumb...just wondering if maybe the information was somehow miscommunicated
