A nurse was asking me if they could use thickener either with the water in the pouch or after drawing it up in the syringe if the crushed medication was to be given orally in a patient on a honey thick diet. They use a thickening powder I believe for these patients. Would they be able to crush, dissolve in the water, draw out, and then add the thickener in a separate container before administering orally?
