Kudos Kandice!

Posted: & Filed Under: Uncategorized

We got a great message about Kandice and how her great job saved a pt receiving an order to which they were allergic:  “Kandice King did a particularly good job.  She weaned sedation off for a patient in one room (unusual on night shift).  More importantly, in bed 1, the pt developed a wide complex tachycardia and became unstable, BP 60s/40s.  Amiodarone was ordered.  The loading dose was mixed, primed and almost given but Kandice stopped the nurse at the bedside and said, “Wait, I think this pt has an allergy to amiodarone.”  The patient had lung toxicity to amiodarone.  They ordered another antiarrhythmic instead.” Way to go Kandice!  Thank you for all of your hard work and great nursing skill.
