Have a question, especially for institutions that have both peds and adult patients. How do you guys manage partial doses for oral tabs (when no oral solutions) for peds? For example a medication has no oral solution but tabs are available. Currently, since most meds are on ADC, we provide nursing instructions in medication admin instructions to dissolve the tablet to create a solution of a certain concentration and draw up the the specific dose.
Example: "Dissolve 32mg tablet in 5ml, give 3.3ml = 21 mg dose"
Thoughts or what are you doing at your institutions. Any EMR builds you may have to prevent nursing from giving entire dose (like 5mL in example above)?
