This is my first year in nursing and I would like to get some information on medications. Can you name some dangerous medications?
Potassium - can not be given by IV push.
Dilantin - can not be mix with other medications.
Any medication could be construed as dangerous. Some medications you want to be particularly careful with are insulin, heparin, TPA, fentanyl, versed, any vasopressor, any vasodilator, any type of medication that causes CNS depression. These are all meds you should already know about.
