The right medication always verify the medication you"re dispensing. Check the label against the medication form 3 times (before removing from the drawer, when removing from container, before returning container to storage). The right dose the unit-dose system minimizes errors, however, when you have to calculate or convert a medication dosage, another nurse should verify it has been done correctly. The right client check the medication administration record against the client"s identification bracelet and then double check that their name corresponds with their bracelet. The right route check with the prescriber if the order does not designate a route of administration (ie. oral) and take extra precaution when administering injections. The right documentation correct documentation is essential to ensure safe medication administration. Appropriate documentation includes the client"s name, the name of ordered medication, the time medication was administered, dose, route, and frequency. The right reason as a nurse, it is our professional responsibility to understand the rationale for prescribed meds.
