    What medications are being drawn up during a C/S?
    I've been doing OB for 20 years, and about the only med during C/S

    Any anesthesia drugs are drawn up by anesthesia.
    The antibiotic that we give after cord clamping is already in a bag (gotten from pharmacy before hand).

    The RN can draw up anything. That does not mean they administer it. Two totally different things.
