So we were given this take home exam in pharmacology, and anyone who has ever had a take-home knows they make it as hard on you as possible. My class of 26 went through it today to make sure al our answers matched up, but no one could agree on this one, either by having differing opinions or just not having a clue. Any feednack would be appreciated!!
Indicate in which order of priority the nburse should administer the medications to these patients:
a. a cardiac patient receiving a daily dose of digoxin
b. an asthmatic patient recieving a daily dose of Singulair
c. a patient receiving an antibiotic FOUR times a day for an infected wound
d. a patient with diabetes receiving a daily dose of insulin
We are always taught AIRWAY first, but in this case, the patient is simply receiving a daily dose of an inhaled med and there is no indications that he is having an ACUTE episode. The rest...we just don't know.
