Capella BSN4016 Unit 8 Discussion 1 & 2

Scope of Practice

Resources

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

Response Guidelines

Respond to one other learner. Are you familiar with the medication he or she identified? Do you think the safeguards that have been put in place are sufficient? What is your opinion regarding the identified medication and how it is administered? Your response should indicate that you have read the weekly readings and contain at least one reference. Additionally, make sure that your response is in accordance with any of the established faculty expectations. Always be sure to follow proper APA style and formatting for any citations and references.
