So my facility is beginning to prepare us for state surveyors who are expected to be arriving this summer. I've never had a surveyor observe my medication/treatment administrations. So I'm a bit nervous. I feel I am performing my duties as they are to be done, but I still think its wise to brush up and prepare.
I was wondering if anyone has any links to sites that have videos on proper medication and treatment administrations.
Im looking for videos that show the correct technique for administering medications (with a EMAR), and also administering treatments.
I found a few videos on YouTube but they seem to be old, and none are using a EMAR.
If anyone knows of any sites, I would greatly appreciate it.
Thanks in advance!

Make sure you know your facilities policy of gtube medication admin and flushes; like do you need to admin each medication individually, and how many ml do you need to flush with after each medication? I agree with getting the most difficult patients/medications out of the way first. Also make sure you handle the insulin correctly (rolling it, keeping it in the fridge as needed, etc). Lastly make sure the carts are well stocked and clean.
