What are some old school but solid medication tips that you feel new nurses/nurses in the last 5years are unaware of? Ex: diluting IV Phenigran or diluting Keppra in a 100ml bag to go slowly over 8-10min

Don't give more than 1 ml of any drug in the deltoid. Do not give caustic meds in the deltoid. Dilute Rocepin in Lidocaine. Please give more viscous meds in the ventrogluteals (i.e. PCN). If you can, give Zyprexa in the ventrogluteals.
