There is a resident who is on Hospice and actively dying. Towards the end of my shift today, he had an extreme amount of secretions that he was unable to clear by coughing. We have an order for Atropine Eye Drops, 2 drops SL q6 hrs. However the 2nd shift nurse who was taking over was adamant about NOT using it. "You have to be extremely careful when using that". Things happen, as usual, and I was unable to ask her what she meant by that. I know that Atropine affects the CNS, but the man is dying and was uncomfortable - ie: dyspnea d/t the secretions and was becoming restlessness. I know you can't read this nurse's mind, but can you help me to understand why she was being so cautios?
