Hi, new nurse here, don't laugh or judge ok?? LOL Question, late in my shift the doc wrote for magnesium IV per protocol bid (I don't remember the dosage), i didn't have time to hang it, and have never done it. what is so different with administering this drug? I mean, what is the "per protocol"?
Any help?? Thanks in advance

On my unit, we have an order set that would seem similar to an insulin sliding scale. If mag level is 1.7 to 1.9, give 2 grams mag over an hour, etc.
