Keeping up with all the new meds is tough enough. Learning both generic and trade names is making my head spin :spin: !!!
Our Docs mostly order meds by the more common trade names.
Nursing journals refer to meds by the generic names.
Patients mostly call their meds by the trade names, (if they remember the names at all!)
It's enough to make this old brain explode::spin: !!!
What do you think? Do you refer to meds by their generic names or by their more common trade names? What would help make communication more clear (easier?) for staff and patients alike?
Guess it's back to making those med cards like in school! Pass the naproxyn sodium please!
