Scope of Practice

As discussed previously in this course, the administration of medications is primarily the responsibility of the nurse.

For this discussion:

•Think about your own nursing practice—can you think of a pharmacological agent that requires a second nurse to verify the medication and dosage before it can be administered to the patient? (at my job, no medication needs to be verified by a second nurse, so research a medication that needs to be verified by two nurses, for example, when giving a blood product, it needs to be verified by two nurses- you can use this example)

◦How is this typically done?

◦What is the rationale for this process?

◦Do you find that your coworkers implement this practice as ordered, or are shortcuts and work-arounds used to provide “lip service” compliance? (since I dont do this, research compliance in second nurse verification)

◦What are the potential problems with these work-arounds?

needs to be at least 150 words, with at least one APA formatted reference, and APA formatted reference throughout the text when their information is used.
