I work in a long term care skilled nursing facility. I crush an awful lot of meds. I mix said meds with apples sauce or pudding or water or juice. I have learned how to avoid getting the dust up my nose for the most part but I still occasionally get a sniffer full.
My concern is that over the course of my carreer if I continue to get these sniffer fulls, Of course it will damage the lining of my nose , and potenially me lungs if it goes that far, but what effect will the medication have on me systemically? I crush everything from BP to Psych meds.
Anyone have any thoughts?
