Series Overview:Every day, 1 in 5 children under 18 years of age receives medication for an acute pathology. When mediations taken for chronic conditions such as asthma, diabetes and ADHD as well as over-the counter medications are taken into consideration, the total number of children who are taking medications in the United States is staggering. Administering medication to children is a unique challenge requiring specialized knowledge and skills. The nurse must consider each child's age, background and level of physical and psychosocial development, and the administration process must be tailored to meet these particular needs. In addition, children are particularly vulnerable to medication errors.
The two-part "Medicating Children" series demonstrates the safest, gentlest and least intrusive methods of administering pediatric medications to children of varying ages. It includes clear guidelines for the preventions of errors, appropriate precautions and instruction on the precise administration of otic, ophthalmic, nasal, oral and rectal medications.
