The administration of medications is a topic that troubles me. I get that they have many patients to get through, but they seem geared toward crushing because it is easier to shove a handful of pills in at once. My mom swallowed her pills at home one at a time with applesauce, but there they offered all her pills in one mouthful with a teaspoon of applesauce.... of course she couldn't swallow that and neither could I. So now her medications are crushed, some which I am uncertain should be, some which are coated because they are incredibly bitter. They are still given with only one scant teaspoon of pudding or applesauce, barely enough to moisten the powder. My concerns seem to fall on deaf ears, is it even possible to change this practice?
