If you are unsure of your calculation results, you should double-check yourself, check with a coworker, or ask the physician. 20-*In Summary (cont.)20.3 Before administering a medication, assess the patient for allergies; evaluate any drug-drug interactions; and check all injection sites for abnormalities. Additionally, you should be aware of the patient’s condition and have the patient sign a consent form if necessary.20.4 The rights of drug administration include the right patient, right drug, right dose, right time, right route, right technique, right documentation, right to know, and right to refuse.20-*In Summary (cont.)20.5 You may be asked to assist or administer medications by any of the following routes: oral, buccal, sublingual, intradermal, intramuscular, intravenous, inhalation, eye, ear, rectal, subcutaneous, sublingual, topical, transdermal, urethral, and vaginal. Your responsibilities will vary based upon the facility where you practice. You should be familiar with the routes and medications used at your facility.20.6 Needles vary in length from ½ to 3 inches. They vary in gauge (diameter) from 18 to 26; the smaller the number, the larger the diameter of the needle. 20-*In Summary (cont.)20.7 The three most common injection routes are intradermal, subcutaneous, and intramuscular. All injections are given using aseptic technique. Intradermal (ID) injections are administered between the upper layers of skin and create a wheal. Subcutaneous (sub-Q) injections are administered just under the skin. Intramuscular (IM) injections are administered into a muscle. 20-*In Summary (cont.)20.8 Patients should be aware of possible interactions and taught to report all medications including OTC, supplements, and herbal remedies. They should know how to read the prescription label and in some cases the package insert. Patients should be aware of the possible adverse effects of medications and what and when to report them to the health-care facility. 20-*In Summary (cont.)20.9 Pediatric and geriatric patients require extreme care when calculating doses due to the differences in how their bodies absorb, metabolize, eliminate, and distribute the medications. Treat pediatric patients with special care and communication to make the experience as positive as possible. Restraining may be necessary. Checking medications given to pregnant and breastfeeding patients for possible adverse effects is essential. Being considerate to patient’s cultural differences is also part of a medical assistant’s role. 20-*In Summary (cont.)20.10 To avoid the overuse or abuse of pain medications, other types of pain therapy have gained popularity. Some examples include biofeedback, guided imagery, and relaxation exercises.20-*End of Chapter 20Words are the most powerful drug used by mankind.~Rudyard Kipling
