Consequently, she wrongfully administered Aspirin 81 mg, Wellbutrin IR l00mg, Merrem 500mg IV, and Proamatine 5mg to the said patient. The RN’s conduct unnecessarily exposed her patients to a risk of harm from inappropriately administered medications.
Then on or about April 9, 2017, the RN failed to verify a new physician’s order for Novolog Insulin reported during handoff with the medical record before attempting to administer the medication to a patient. When the patient questioned and refused the medication, the RN realized the medication was not ordered to be given until the next day. Respondent’s conduct ex}aosed the patient to a risk of harm in that extra insulin could have caused the patient’s glucose levels to become dangerously low.
In response to the incident above, the RN states that this was her first employment and experience as a new nurse. The RN then states that she never witnessed a nurse in the facility ask for a patient’s name and date of birth before giving medications. However, the RN acknowledges accountability for her actions. The RN further states that the facility lacked basic safety equipment, such as scanners, and that other facilities have to prevent this type of error. In addition, the RN states that she received this patient mid-day from her preceptor, who told her the patient had a new order for insulin that needed to be given. Lastly, the RN states that she now always checks orders, personally.
