· I TRIED TO WRITE BUT COULDNOT, HOPE YOU CAN SOME IDEA:Medication safety Standard: In my experiences of clinical placement,I was allocated with RN in ward and she was very supportive as well as good mentor, she taught me about medication rights and time management. During medication time I was observing her, she took out the medicine and entered in patient room but at the same time pt. was in bathroom ,RN not able to give medication and RN came out and she talked to me and she did other works and later on she forget that medication with that pt. went to the next room pt. with the same medication, then after I asked her is this for her? She said yes, is it I said? Then after she realize and checked again.she did a nearly medication error, from this mistake I would double check the medication chart to see if there is an error in future.

· And RN verbalise in handover so that oncoming staff are aware of the situation.

· ACCORDING TO NSQHS: Firstlyneed to check that the medication order is legal and valid by checking: patient details, doctor’s name/signature, valid date, order is legible and written in ink, generic drug name used, dose, frequency, route
