Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    The nurse knows that all of the following are a right of medication administration except

    • A.

      Right patient

    • B.

      Right room

    • C.

      Right time

    • D.

      Right dose

    Correct Answer
    B. Right room
    Explanation
    The nurse knows that "Right room" is not a right of medication administration because the location or setting in which the medication is administered does not affect the safety or effectiveness of the medication. The other rights, including the right patient, right time, and right dose, are crucial to ensure that the medication is given to the correct patient, at the appropriate time, and in the correct dosage. However, the physical room or environment does not directly impact the administration process.

    Correct Answer
    D. Patient verbalizing their name, DOB and compare to armband and chart
    Explanation
    The nurse should identify the patient by comparing the patient's verbalized name and date of birth to their armband and chart. This ensures that the patient's identity is correctly verified before administering any medications. Comparing the name and date of birth to the armband and chart helps prevent medication errors and ensures that the medication is given to the correct patient.

    It is ok for the nurse to prepare medication for several patients at the same time prior to administering them in order to improve time management.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Preparing medication for several patients at the same time prior to administering them is not considered safe practice. Each patient's medication needs to be carefully checked and verified to ensure accuracy and prevent any potential errors. Administering medications requires attention to detail and should not be rushed or done in a way that compromises patient safety. Therefore, it is not okay for the nurse to prepare medication for several patients at the same time in order to improve time management.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    Nurses are responsible for ensuring the safety and well-being of patients, including administering medications accurately. Checking the dosage calculation is a crucial step in this process to prevent medication errors and potential harm to the patient. Therefore, it is necessary for a nurse to check the dosage calculation on a medication prior to administering it.

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    If the nurse is unable to clearly read the doctors order they should...

    • A.

      Ask another nurse who has been working with that physician for a long time to decipher the hand writing

    • B.

      Call the physician and request clarification

    • C.

      Contact the pharmacy to discuss the order

    • D.

      Notify the charge nurse

    Correct Answer
    B. Call the physician and request clarification
    Explanation
    If the nurse is unable to clearly read the doctor's order, the best course of action would be to call the physician and request clarification. This is important because misinterpreting a doctor's order can lead to serious consequences for the patient's health and safety. By directly contacting the physician, the nurse can ensure that they have a clear understanding of the order and can provide the appropriate care for the patient. Asking another nurse or contacting the pharmacy may not provide the immediate clarification needed, so calling the physician is the most effective option in this situation.
