    Has anyone heard of this, we just started using it on our Hospice pts, and I think it is a wonderful creation. Perfect fo the end of the life, when PO meds can't be given, and sure beats shots etc. Of cours I may just be behind the times and it may not be new to many of you. I was just real excited about it.........Amazing what excites us nurses
    Hello
    I work for a hospice in Pa, we use all kinds of gels. we use roxonal, which is sublinqual morphine or we have it compounded in to a gel.. we use scopolamine, to dry up secreations... also can compound ativan into a gel.. would be nice if they used these meds in the hospital... i had never heard of these until i started working for hospice.
