Description

A seasoned nurse had drawn up the right dose of a drug hundreds of times in her career.

But once…she made a life-changing error. A patient died, she was suspended and then fired from a profession she loves.

Patient safety is a sacred bond. For nurses, keeping patients safe is the top priority. But long shifts, high acuities, confusing dosing calculations, an ever-changing list of drug interactions, and similar drug names create an environment where even the most competent clinician can make a serious medication mistake.

Are you confident that you have the tools you need to avoid making a headline error?

This recording will give you all the resources you need to fulfill this critical aspect of your job and dramatically reduce your risk of making a life-changing error. Join Rachel Cartwright-Vanzant as she shares with you what she has learned working with the Board of Nursing in five states, consulting and educating nurses who have received corrective action and suspension related to their medication errors!
