    Residents with a Peg tube get all their A.M. meds. In addition to Synthroid & Omeprazole, some residents have orders for 6am Reglan, Hydralazine, Ativan, Keppra, ABH gel, Lyrica, Norco, breathing treatments.

    I recall changing the Nitro, Duragesic, and Lidoderm patches on the 6-7 med pass. Also drew up the scheduled insulins and gave valproic acid syrup.

    What do you mean you drew them up- do you mean in preparation for another nurse to give them at a later time? Just curious.

    When I worked ltc one of our non skilled units was pretty much identical to this. 55 beds, usually about 12-16 accuchecks, most with coverage, a couple pegs and the occasional iv. I usually started getting my cart ready at 4:30 and start down the hall a few minutes before 5a and I'd usually finish a few minutes after 7a so, about 2 hrs 10-20 minutes. When I was new it took longer. Our shift technically ended at 7:15a, that's usually the time I'd start giving report and counting meds after my med pass.
