I made my first med error as a new grad; I flushed a peripheral IV with heparin flush. Didn't realize my error until shift change, 9 hours later. Patient was okay. Told my preceptor. I feel absolutely horrible and like I made a huge mistake and could have really hurt someone.
I’m one week away from finishing my 12 week orientation on a busy med/tele floor... & one thing I can take away from it is that I am miserable. I take work home with me everyday. I want to leave but I have this feeling that I’m selling myself short by not sticking out atleast a year on my current floor. Any advice?
