This prob. wont make it any easier for you, but we can't pass meds in the dining room. So what I try to do is make a pass up the hall before meals and get who I can and try to make it to the dining room toward the end of the meal. I park my cart right outside the dining room and try to get the residents as they come out. Yeah it does get a little busy and some I miss, but when I get those done I turn around and go back down the hall and get the ones that went on to there rooms. Like I said this is not a good routine, but it does help me.
