Counting Trazadone the same as narcotic in HH

  1. 0
    I work for a HH and recently had a client that takes Trazadone qhs. We are counting it each shift, like a narcotic because it's a prescribed sleep aid. Is this the norm in HH to count this drug? I've never had to do so in the hospital or nursing home.

    When I worked in a LTC facility, it was locked up. I work in a hospital now, and pharmacy doses it. We don't have to count it. I think it varies from facility to facility and state to state. I have worked in places that didn't lock up Ativan.
