The dilaudid we use at my current hospital comes 2mg/ml in one syringe. Just saying.
Okay, thank you, applewhitern, for that information.
Let's say, for lack of ------------- here, one 2mg/ml syringe dose was used. 0.5ml was injected into the IV and a flush followed, that fell off of the bed which the husband pointed out, was used, totaling a dose of 1mg. Then, 0.25ml was injected making the dose 1.5mg.
Was the second dose followed by the same flush that fell off of the bed that the patient's husband pointed out?
Saline flushes come in 3ml doses, do they not? Is the entire 3ml required for a flush following a medication administration? I wish my medical wife Belinda was awake!
And, was the wasted dose witnessed?
Like I said before, "interesting scenario"!
