Device Crushes and Administers Medications

If grinding up meds is problematic for you, here’s one alternative to a mortar and pestle. Known as the PillCrusher™, it is a syringe that allows the user to crush tablet medications, draw up water, and administer the medication — all with one device. The PillCrusher™ is available through Nurse Assist in Fort Worth, TX  (www.nurseassist.com). Call toll-free (800) 649-6800 and ask for item #3305. The price quoted in January 2013 was $31 for a case of 30 syringes. Please note: As of January 2013, Nurse Assist had a $100 minimum for ordering by phone.
