Correct

- Checking the drug label before giving the medicine

- Giving the medicine with a glass of water

- Using two client identifiers before giving the medicine

- Asking the client to state their name

- Documenting the amount administered in the client chart

Rationale

-"Using two client identifiers before giving the medicine" and "Asking the client to state their name" are correct. The six rights of medication administration are a guide to prevent medication errors, and are the last checkpoints before the medication is given to the client. Any verification of who the client is would be part of the "right client" right of medication administration. The six rights are: right medication, right dose, right client, right route, right time and right documentation.

-"Checking the drug label before giving the medicine" is incorrect because this is verifying the "right medication", not the right client.

-"Giving the medicine with a glass of water" is incorrect because this is simply following standard protocol for giving an oral medication.

-"Documenting the amount administered in the client chart" is incorrect because this is verifying the "right documentation", not the right client.
