EYEDROPS

A 5ml bottle = 100 doses

A 3ml bottle = 60 doses

To ensure you have enough an example would be:

You are seeing in the medication on a Friday and someone has 2 eyedrops a night.

So…

2 X 28(days of the month) = 56 + 6 doses (Friday, Saturday & Sunday) = 62 doses needed in total.

LIQUIDS

5ml x ONCE a day = 5 x 28 (month) = 140ml needed for month

10ml x ONCE a day = 10 x 28 (month) = 280ml needed for month

10ml x TWICE a day = 10 X 2 (=20ml) x 28 (month)= 560ml needed for month

10ml x THREE a day = 10 x 3 (=30ml) x 28(month) = 840ml needed for month

10ml x FOUR a day = 10 x 4 (=40ml) x 28(month) = 1120ml needed for month

15ml x ONCE a day = 420ml

15ml x TWICE a day = 840ml

15ml x THREE times a day= 1260ml

15ml x FOUR times a day = 1680ml

20ml x ONCE a day = 560ml

20ml x TWICE a day = 1120ml

20ml x THREE times day  = 1680ml

20ml x FOUR times a day = 2240ml

TABLETS

2 tablets ONCE a day = 2 x 28 (month) = 56 needed for the month

2 tablets TWICE a day = 112 needed

2 tablets THREE times a day = 168 needed

2 tablets FOUR times a day = 224 needed

DON’T FORGET TO ADD ON AND CARRY OVER ANY EXTRA MEDICATION NEEDED TO LAST UNTIL THE MONDAY (or start of new meds month).

Do not add on any medication that will be going into disposal as this should be counted when disposal is completed.
