psychotropic medications

  1. I started a job at a new facility and I have to keep track of psychotropic med reductions which I have never done before. The social worker has always done that at the other facility I worked for. Does anyone have the clear cut rules on dose reductions. It is so confusing to me. I google it but I feel like I get different answers and I am not sure which ones are accurate or the articles are so long and confusing they are impossible to understand. Please help!
