Well, I'm sure I'm not the first one in this predicament. If I spent enough time, I'm sure I would find the thread that answers this question to a T.
I'm orienting in a new LTC, on the acute care side of the building. There are a few residents who have orders for crush meds. Wouldn't you know it, of course, there are meds that are on the "do not crush" list that are being crushed.
What do I do? I know there are the nurses who are going to answer and say "Are you kidding?! Don't crush them!" But understand that the nurses who are orienting me are crushing the meds. I don't remember what the meds are, but I know at least one of them are enterically coated. One particular patient is on a peg-tube, has been at this facility for some time, and is doing quite well, so is it a problem? I wonder.
I don't want to make a big deal out of it if I'm going to be working with the nurses who are orienting me, and who I will be working with.
I know that the patient is more important than the working relationships, but try to see this from a newbies point of view please, before you start telling me I'm stupid for even asking for advice.
