EMS education

Public·19 members

As providers, we are tasked at times to make quick decisions for patient care. There is nothing wrong with using a cheat sheet or app if you are unsure and always go to medical directions or call medical control, but here is a case of a nurse who gave the wrong drug and had a fatal outcome for the patient. I am sure from what I read, the nurse did not mean to hurt the patient in any way, but when it is a quick, stressful decision, we providers need to be sure or get clarification or a second look. Remember everything we do, affects somebody else, so we need to be on our best game. Be safe and always keep learning
