It is very wrong to pull out medications that you are not going to give patient .Here are the reasons why:

1.It will lead to medication errors.

2.Patient dissatisfaction because you are giving what you are not sure of.

3. It will lead to legal action against employer because patient got sicker or dissatisfied.

4.High turnover rate.Your license is at stake because you are not sure that the medications were given .The puller and pusher might lose their job.

Be a professional and support social, economic and professional growth. Do not create uncertainty and fear.Do it and say it right.

As a Nurse it is important to show complete compliance with the policy and practices.

If you pull out patient medication, give it ,do not leave medications at the bedside or pull it for another nurse.

Review your employee handbook policies and procedures on medication administration.
