Quote from Jon J
I've never seen one MAR for multiple patients.
Do you mind describing it? Sounds like it could be a good idea.
Well where I work, we have computerized EMARs, so we do med scanning. When we have computer downtime, we go to paper MARs but again, everything is on there.
But in other places I have been, they all had paper MARs. It was just tailored to the patient's list of medications. Everything, including insulins, pain meds and IV meds are on the MAR. Usually the pain meds are the PRN meds and the IV meds (such as continuous infusions) are under "unscheduled." For insulins, there is a spot where we can record the blood sugar. Otherwise, there is just the time listed on when it is schedule and then we initial next to it or if it was not given, it would be circled and at the bottom of each page is a little area where we can write a quick note.
