Macy Catheter Moment

Trisha Kendall RN // Clinical Nurse Specialist // Gilchrist Hospice Care of Maryland

An RN explains how her organization has been introducing use of Macy Catheters to patients, starting in the inpatient sector and moving onto various patients whose needs would be met through rectal administration.

“The impact has been huge.  We were really struggling with the shortage of IV pain medications in particular in our in-patient unit and we were able to utilize readily available pill form medications and give to patients right away.  So, we really didn’t see a negative impact during that shortage, which was really great.”
