Intravenous Therapy

    Direct IV Injections ("IV Push")

    The "IV Push" method of medication administration may be ordered for clients that have muscle atrophy or the medication is poorly absorbed from the tissues.
    Reminder: When you give an “IV Push” medication, there is a quick onset of the medication’s action. Therefore, it is critical that medication dosage calculations are accurate and precise in order to prevent serious or fatal consequences.

    Also, when administering medications via the direct IV route, it is important to check the compatibility of the IV solution and the medication you are to administer. Flushing the IV line with normal saline after you administer a medication is good practice because it ensures that part of the medication has not been left behind in the IV tubing.
