    What are a list of popular meds that are used in nursing homes, hospitals, rehab hospitals that require a BP check?

    Just trying to be a great nurse and I want to learn as much as possible.

    You will want to check the bp and hr before any bp meds are given. There are so many bp meds. You will learn as you give them on a daily basis. There is no way to make a list of this.
    Vespertinas, KelRN215, and roser13 like this.

    I look up any drugs I'm not familiar with before giving them. If it has anything at all to do with BP or HR, I check both before I give them, and I chart it. That's just my rule for myself. I also chart a BP anytime I give narcotics.
