Medication Error

Watch the first 7 minutes from Charged with Manslaughter for a Drug Error.

After reflecting on the video content and reviewing the information in this module, discuss how you, as a nurse, will balance the ethical obligations you have to the patient for safe medication administration with the pressures and policies of healthcare institutions and your nursing workload. Develop a plan on how you will prevent yourself from becoming lax and using shortcuts in the medication administration process.
