What do you recommend? There are so many out there.
Well - for this round of clinicals, I write out drug cards relating to the patients I've had on a given night. Although I've had one or two nights to the contrary, these patient's meds generally vary enough to keep me busy. When I am stuck due to 'repeats' or lack of meds, I'll resort to looking up meds that I come across in my lecture readings. My patient from last week had an MAR that was 5 pages long...that may get me to Christmas break:D
Last round of clinicals, the instructor gave us a weekly list of meds to look up. During lab last year, they gave us a list of about 15 meds plus all the insulins.
So you wrote them out instead of using the premade cards? I suppose that would help me learn them better...
Only the initial lab instructors allow the use of pre made cards; the rest of the instructors required that we write them out - I personally have 'QUICK' 17th Edition Drug Cards from Wolters Kluwer/ Lippincott Williams and Wilkins. But I do think it sinks in better when you write them out. Once you get the hang of writing down the most pertinent info, they won't take too long to write.
Create well-written care plans that meets your patient's health goals.
