Danielle, Week 5

Recommended Posts

I am not trying to start anything or being rude about this but, as a ARNP (Nurse Practitioner) and in the state of FL medication dispensing is strictly prohibited by an aide in a hopital setting(including OTC meds) and you will go to jail. Its a very serious thing so I am a bit shocked that any other state allows this. Again not trying to say its not true just VERY surprised by this information. Should I allow an aide to give out meds my lic are on the line.

This was in Canada and it happened 30 years ago. It was legal and the pharmacy came around and made sure it was done correctly. I heard it changed now and only RNS can give meds.

I would not want that cray cray danielle being my nurse, I was a burn tech for quite a few yrs before I went back to waiting tbls, I was allowed to give any meds but the narcotics, however we did have chocolate flavored valium for the kids and I was allowed to give that, under the RN who was on our unit.
