    GT med administration question?????please help

    do we have to inform the doctor is residual is more than 100ml? i thought we just hold it and check later if it is same and if it is less then we can start feeding again.
  12. if the patient is on g-tube and the feeding is running and the nurse is about to give meds to that patient so the nurse held the feeding and gave meds ..so my question is can the nurse start feeding right after giving meds (via g-tube?) or do we have to wait for some time?????
  13. tomorow is my first day and i m very nervous because this is my first job..can someone please give me some advice or tips or anything that might be helpful?? what were the things you did when you first started working as lpn/lvn or RN ????
