Nursing and Patient Medications

Patient Medications is the place for Licensed Nurses to discuss patient medication administration, interactions, and specifics regarding dosing. It is NOT a place for medical advice nor will it replace your medication reference material or pharmacist input. General info about meds and hospital policy can be discussed.
