Dear Nurses,

Pay attention to the nurse above and her solution to good medication administration.
This is very poor judgement on her part.
Here are some helpful pointers for good medication administration:
- Follow MD orders
- Remember the five rights
- DO NOT USE COLOR CODING AS YOUR ONLY GUIDELINE. Remember, many pills may have the same color, but that does not mean they are of equal strength.
- If you are a new nurse and you are uncertain, consult with a more experienced nurse
to help you out.
- Always follow your Institution's policies and procedures

Chapters 5 and 6, enjoy reading.
Also enjoy watching the Clinical videos for nurses.
