Hi, i was wondering if someone from the medical profession could help me out. My girlfriend is a nurse and worked in a care home a few years ago. She was newly qualified and young/ slightly nervous due to her inexperience. While doing the medication rounds one night she thinks she may have mixed up medication for two patients. One was am elderly woman approx 86 years of age who was admitted to hospital the next day and passed away a week later due to mensentric ischemia. She thinks the medication that she may have been missed blood pressure medication - more than likely. I am trying to reassure her that this was not her fault and just an unfortunate coinscience. Can I get an expert opinion on this? Any research I have done on line indicates that this could not be possible. This is something that has ate away at my girlfriend for the past few months and has really affected her mental health. Any help would be grately appreiated. Thanks.
