    Quote from 2ndCareerRN
    That is one of the main reasons. The opiod (usally a drug overdose) has a longer half life. You can keep them in the ER and continually push narcan, or start a drip and put them in ICU. We will often opt for the drip and admission so as not to tie up a nurse and bed in the ER for an extended period of time. It also gives a chance to run a couple banana bags and other fluids to plump up a pt.

    Do you know what the recommendations are for nursing care for pt on Narcan drip?
    Recommended dilution?
