25-q-of-the-week

Question Options:
1.) A
2.) B
3.) C
4.) D

Correct Option/Answers: 4

Rationale:
Option 1: The unit symbol should be written in the singular form; therefore, it is inappropriate to document it as “8.5 mgs of medication.”
Option 2: The unit symbol should not be followed by a period unless it is the last word in a sentence; therefore, it is inappropriate to write as “5 mg. of medication.”
Option 3: There should be a space between the number and the unit symbol; therefore, “2mL IV injection” is inappropriate documentation.
Option 4: The documentation “5 mg of medication” recorded by student nurse D is correct notation according to the International System of Units (SI) rules of notation.
