Standardized Medication Order Writing
Project Description: To standardize the writing of medication orders for inpatient in the UF Veterinary Hospitals to avoid confusion when technicians are administering treatments. The project aimed to educate clinicians, technicians and veterinary students to write orders as a total milligram dose followed by route of administration and frequency rather than variations including "mg/kg" or "1/2 tablet " etc.
