Milk Frother Blends Crushed Meds

In a blog on his website (www.feedingtubeholder.com), Justin Rumley shares this good tip: After crushing his father’s medications, they would use a milk frother to blend the crushed pills with water. They bought an inexpensive frother from IKEA.

 

But be careful what you crush! For information on crushing medications and a link to the Institute for Safe Medication Practices’ (ISMP) “Do Not Crush” list, see “Drug Administration through a Feeding Tube,” by J. Boullata, PharmD, RPh, BCNSP (Sept/Oct 2011 LifelineLetter) and “Tips from the Plumber’s Helper: Liquid Medications,” by Mark Klang, MS, RPh, BCNSP, PhD (Nov/Dec 2015 LifelineLetter).
