Discussion Question #3: A nurse on the night shift in a busy hospital sees a physician’s order to administer an intravenous medication to a patient who has just been admitted through the ER. She does not recognize the name of the drug but notes a charge of $4,000 for the drug. Her curiosity aroused, the nurse checks the drug and discovers it should not be administered more frequently than every six weeks and any patient receiving it should be carefully monitored at 15- minute intervals. The patient tells her he received the same medication just two weeks previously. What should the nurse do? In checking the drug is the nurse practicing risk management? Explain your answer.
