DoRo

Day 36:

Our supervising resident from last month, Dr. Z, spent a considerable amount of time emphasizing to students the importance of checking patients' MARs (medication lists/nursing notes) each day for accuracy. This might seem like common sense, but it's an easy task to forget (especially if your patient's MAR seems to have magically disappeared during the timeframe you're looking for it).

Long story short, I took this advice to heart, and because of it, I was able to spot three potential errors yesterday afternoon involving two different patients. I alerted our resident, and orders were written to resolve the issues at hand.

And that, in turn, made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. What's better than that?
