Nysatin is one of the drugs and one of the questions asks why a nurse would ever hold a dose of this. I can't seem to find any reason why. I've looked through my lecture notes, online etc. I know it should be swished and swallowed after a meal, so if the patient has a meal coming, the nurse might wait to give the medication until after the meal, but I'm assuming the dose time would be scheduled to conicide with not right before a meal time.
So, are there any reasons why a nurse would hold a dose?

In a real world application I wouldn't give it until after a meal.

Forgive me, I just finished writing my very first care plan so my brain is a bit fried.
