Category Archives: Nausea / Vomiting

Question: I was wondering if there was a reason that, according to the standing orders, if you want to give a patient under 25 kg Gravol you can call the BHP for an order but there is no stipulation for giving Benadryl to a patient under 25 kg's. Is this on purpose? It suggests to me I should not consider calling the BHP for an order for Benadryl for an under 25 kg pt. Is this correct?

Question: The old protocol for Gravol stated it may be given for severe nausea or vomiting. The new one also says we may give it for nausea or vomiting. It does not say severe anymore. My question is do we have to give it to everyone who says they have nausea even if it's minor?
