Would greatly appreciate your help...Got to love mental health nursing :-)

If the patient is on lactulose, you mix the lactulose with prune juice and melted butter. When that gets sucked down, beware of the blow-out.

Remember the old SNL skit? http://www.nbc.com/Saturday_Night_Li...n-blow/229046/
- 2Apr 12, '09 by VivaLasViejas GuideOK, I've never heard of the "hot slider", but that's what I love about allnurses.........I learn something new every day!! And wouldn't you know, I happen to have a resident on my unit who hadn't had a good poop in ten days and wasn't satisfied with the results of the enema she got last night..........so after obtaining the necessary ingredients and nuking it for 45 seconds, I offered her the cocktail in the hope that she wouldn't insist on another enema.
It wasn't 30 minutes before the brew lived up to its name. The resident had three ginormous BMs within the next two hours, and was thinking about making a fourth deposit in the BSC when I left for the night. My reward was a bear hug from a VERY grateful elderly woman, who also told me that was the best thing anyone had done for her in the entire time she'd been there.
So, from Mrs. McK. to me to you, I say THANK YOU!! That stuff works like a charm!
