A nurse is reviewing a physician order for a medication that she does not recognize. After the nurse looks up the medication in a drug reference with no success, what should she do next?


•A pharmacist is the most reliable source of information about medications.

•Do not call the physician until you can confirm the drug name is incorrect.

•Never ask the patient about a drug. The nurse will appear incompetent and unqualified.

•Never administer a medication you don't know.
