I didn't name drug because this site seems very touchy on TOS violations and threads I searched said refer to drug book, but drug books don't always go into detail.
Ativan of course.
No worries! Naming a drug by itself doesn't violate TOS. Name a drug, a patient and exceptionally specific details, and yes, that could start leading you into trouble
Figured as much: Ativan's notorious for being viscous. But depending on how much you inject, a larger muscle may be the better option for the Ativan. 1.5mL of injection solution total is the max for a deltoid, maybe 2mL if they've got a very beefy muscle. You may have been better off going for the vastus lateralis or a glute.
I'll bet the other drug in question (the "common" one) is Haldol. While I'm here, a good trick for drawing up Ativan: draw up the Haldol first, inject into the Ativan vial, then draw the mixture back into the syringe. A LVN in the ER taught me that one...wish I learned it earlier.
