I'm the pharmacy manager at a facility that services a Hospital and LTC. We are starting to use the PLO gel formulations for our hospice and pain managment patients. We are buying these from another pharmacy, not mixing them ourselves. The education coordinator ask me if I had any education info to give the nurses on the use of PLO gel preparation. They know the basics, wear gloves, put on wrist/forearm, Don't give PO even though it says Oral Syringe (yep, we had it happen!)
I've searched the internet and haven't found anything of great use. Has anyone developed an info sheet that I can use?
Thanks for ya'lls help on this! For this pharmacist, my main customer is the nurses!!

Most nurses working in the hospice arena are aware of these products.
Have a great day!
As do we in our hospice. But I don't refer to it as PLO nor do my pharmacist when I am speaking to them. Topical Meds is the phrase around here in these parts. LOL. I learn something new everyday.
