    Medication Aids??

    as an ex-don and an ex-surveyor in la and now a nurse consultant my thoughts on med techs are mixed. according to the federal regulation the idt, which includes the pharmacist, don, administrator, md and the medical director need to re-evaluate all the residents medications, especially the ones with 9+ meds. using med techs does not really help you with this regulation. by decreasing the meds you decrease the chances of drug to drug interactions, food to drug interactions, side-effects, med errors and etc. decreasing the meds will increase the charge nurses time on the floor to supervise her cna's, spend time with her patients, educate the staff and to meet with families, which is time well spent. shoreh
