Flexible med pass

Does the state of Virginia allow flexible med pass times? New here, LPN from MI with 13 years experience in LTC. The patient ratio is much higher, and was wondering if this is an option.

Thank you.

I don't know the answer to your question, but some facilities order AM meds on the MAR to be given at 0800, 0900 & 1000 to allow the nurse to do a longer med pass time and still be within the medication administration window.

Its best to call the government agency that licensed your facility to get the best response because this varies from state to state.
