    floating medications in water to administer

    Thanks for the input. I agree we will get many grievances. Also, I am grieving the procedure with the union. I have a pharmacist in the community looking at the procedure. A lot of us nurses gave our input regarding our concerns. All that went to deaf ears. It's pretty sad. Very punitive for the environment.
  2. The jail facility I work in just started floating medications in water for every inmate/patient whether he/she hoards or cheeks. This procedure is the new practice with the entire population. The medications being floated are everything from cardiac to phsych medications and enteric coated medications. I can understand the medications that are wanted by all.... but HCTZ? If you work in a facility that does this as practice, please give me some insight.
