As a nursing student,
I can remember standing outside a patient’s room, practicing
what I would say when meeting a patient for the first time.
I can also remember having to return to that patient’s
room to ask a question I had forgotten or perform an assessment
that I had missed. As an educator, I can remember how difficult
it was to explain complicated pathophysiology in clear terms.
As a preceptor, I can remember how important it was to give
an orientee enough space to learn while also making sure that
the patient was given appropriate and safe care.
Whether you are reading
this enewsletter as a staff nurse, student, manager, or educator,
I am sure that you can remember similar scenarios. No matter
your role, chances are you are both learning and teaching
on a daily basis, so please take some time to explore the
articles in NursingCenter’s “More Resources.”

elevated blood glucose levels attained with point-of-care
testing have been related to a drug device interaction in
patients receiving medications that contain maltose or metabolize
into maltose. These inaccurate levels have resulted in inappropriate
insulin administration and subsequent hypoglycemia, coma,
persistent vegetative state, and even death. Remember these
steps to reduce the risk of false glucose meter readings:
- Check meters and test
- Treat the patient,
not the glucose reading.
- Label glucose meters.
- Increase awareness.
- Identify patients
- Establish warnings.
- Develop protocols.
- Be prepared for errors.
- Educate patients.
