C3.2 R5: Complete the “Med Safety Game” and document in ePortfolio

With starting drug distribution this week I thought it would be a good opportunity to brush up on some med safety with the med safety game.

I learned the following med safety facts:

  • Only an RN can administer IV medications, not LPN
  • Pt’s can use their own medications if the physician has written an order that they can use their own meds and that the meds have been identified by pharmacy
  • A patient assignment can be changed (LPN to RN, vice versa) to accommodate the patient’s needs within the nurse’s scope of practice.
  • In acute care LPNs are responsible for participating in narcotic counts and resolving discrepancies.

See attached for my certificate: Med Safety Game

This was a great review of interesting problems that I may encounter on this rotation!
