Nurses perform many critical tasks concerning patient care in a Tennessee hospital setting and one of the most critical is the dispensing of medication.

This involves verifying five pieces of information before a medication is administered: right medication, right dose, right means of administration, right time and right patient. Failure to observe these rules can end tragically with a wrongful death.
