Discussion 2 

Vancomycin:

A patient is prescribed vancomycin for a gram-positive organism. The nurse on the shift before you stated in report that they could not find an IV pump, so they just hung the vancomycin and let it run to gravity. When you assess your patient, you notice flushing of the skin, a rash starting to appear, and the patient is becoming hypotensive.

  1. What do you suspect is happening with this patient?
  2. What is the cause of this rash? What could have been done to prevent this adverse effect to this patient?
