Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we’ll take a look at some of the changes in nurse autonomy and independence being considered by the Veteran’s Affairs Administration.

Then in this week’s special tips segment, we are joined again by our good friend and pharmacist Lisa Booze from the Maryland Poison Center. She is talking about some recent events surrounding compounded pain cremes patients are getting prescriptions for. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

Over the past couple of years, poison centers have been receiving calls about children and adults who have ingested or been exposed dermally to compounded pain creams and ointments. These prescription compounded pain creme topical products are prepared for specific patients who have chronic pain as an alternative to opioids and other oral analgesics. Pharmacist Lisa Booze from the Maryland Poison Center joins us again to talk about the dangers of these topical compounded prescription pain cremes on this segment of the MedicCast. As more of these products are showing up in homes, you might run into a poisoning related to them. What should you do? Check it out.
