i have recently returned to work after being off for 6 months. i had to go thru orientation again and have to take a test. I am drawing a blank on doing med conversions
med available 0.4mg/ml med ordered 400mcg answer____mls
med available 25mcg tab med ordered 0.1mg answer____tab
med available 10gr supp med ordered gr1/4 answer____mls
can you suggest any web sites for refreshening my memory or help me out. I think we all get used to the pharmacy doing all the conversions for us and its like everything else, if you don't use it,you loose it
thanks a bunch. please pm me
