CASE SCENARIO A Nurse Provides prescription medicine without authority A Nurses Board received a complaint concerning allegations that an Enrolled Nurse, whilst working in the emergency department of a hospital, practiced outside the scope of practice, by knowingly providing prescription only medication to a patient without the authority of a medical officer. When interviewed, the nurse stated “the patient attended the emergency department for treatment and the department was busy at this particular time and the patient knowing this stated that they were not prepared to wait for treatment.” The nurse made enquires of the patient's allergies and responses to medication and then consulted a doctor, verbally. The nurse then obtained a packet of antibiotics and provided them to the patient. The nurse also made false entries in the medical record of the patient.
