SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) So a situation came up that I was curious about how physicians(resident or otherwise) handled or if it has happened to you. A nurse was uncomfortable administering an ordered medication because she believed it was too dangerous (patient was in ICU with lots going on with him). She flat out refused to administer said meds.... I don't want to delve into too many specifics, this is not the apppropriate place for that, but have you had this sort of thing happen and how do you deal with it in a professionall manner?
