Drug Information

Nurses play a primary role in the safe administration of medications. Clinicians in every specialty are responsible for ensuring the right drug and dose are given to the right patient, via the correct route, and at the appropriate time. Nurses must also properly document all medications, confirm the reason for administration and monitor for effectiveness and adverse effects. All orders should be verified, clear, complete, current, legible, and appropriate for the patient. With thousands of drugs available on the market today, nurses should have full knowledge on the effects, adverse effects, and interactions of drugs to properly educate their patients and reduce the risks of medication errors.

In this Drug Information library, we’ve put together resources to help you provide the best care to your patients. Our Pocket Cards are quick, handy references to utilize when administering common medications. Refer to the Guideline Summaries to learn need-to-know information from the latest recommendations. Our infographics, tips and mnemonics, and blogs are additional resources to assist you in your clinical practice.
