Please note: The sections shaded grey are for your information only and can be deleted for final submission. You are only required to type into the white sections. Word counts are suggested (please delete these instructions for final submission).

Brief overview of situation/clinical encounter

Provide a succinct overview with adequate information in which to contextualise the pre-requisite being discussed (150 words).


When we started the shift at 2 pm and during checking on our patients on handover round we have found an IV antibiotics medication connected to infusion pump, but not connecting to the patient iv line since 8 am. The responsible nurse realised that he forgets to connect the iv medication to the patient because he was so busy during the shift and he thought that he has done it, but he is not.

This medication was two times a day and now we have missed morning dose which will affect the patient treatment process.
