Your mentor is putting a patient at risk - what do you do?


Yes Stella you are completely right. I meant that because nursing is continually evolving, it cannot always be possible to keep up to date with everything, hence students may bring new evidence to the attention of nurses they meet on placement. Although it is not their responsibility, as you said. My specific example was related to skin prep using an alcohol wipe before giving sub-cut injections, as there is lots of conflicting advice regarding its necessity. wahoo, i won! thanks! :)
