Pharmacology Exam 1 Notes **For Chapter’s 1-9 and other calculations related material, Refer to skills Module (calculations) Morris Chapter 10 Medication Administration  As a nurse you need to... assess the patient's ability to self-administer medications, determine whether a patient should receive a medication at a given time, administer medications correctly, and then closely monitor their effects. Do not delegate any part of the medication administration process to nursing assistive personnel (NAP) and use the nursing process to integrate medication therapy into care.  Medication Errors  When medications are administered carelessly and incorrectly, errors can be made, and the consequences can be harmful and threatening to the life of a client.  A medication error is any preventable event that may cause or lead to inappropriate medication use or patient harm while the medication is in the control of the health care professional, patient, or consumer. Such events may be related to professional practice, health care products, procedures, and systems, including prescribing, order communication, product labeling, packaging, and nomenclature, compounding, dispensing, distribution, administration, education, monitoring, and use.  Outcomes from medication errors include;  Increased hospital stay  Increased health care costs  Acute or chronic disability  Death  Medication errors continue to be one of the most prevailing causes of client injury.  On average, each in-patient may experience at least one medication error per day  Medication errors can occur anywhere in the med admin process.  Remember to Focus on the task at hand during med admin., and minimize distractions!
