Prevent Mishaps With Meds That Patients Need to Mix Before Use
Meds that PATIENTS must dilute or reconstitute (PEG bowel preps, cholestyramine, liquid potassium chloride, etc) will cause a stir.
These types of meds are prone to mishaps...since they rely on the patient to properly mix the med in water or another liquid.
Take steps to prevent errors in reconstitution. Mistakes can lead to over- or underdosing, side effects, etc.
