Topic: The Macy Catheter in Skilled Nursing: How and Why to Utilize

Description: Skilled Nursing Facilities face greater challenges than ever before with staffing shortages, escalating cost of care, and the need to treat more complex patients in place. This presentation will discuss how use of a novel medication and fluid administration catheter can decrease hospital transfers and assist in maintaining greater occupancy levels. The lecture will present scenarios for managing common changes in condition in the facility without the need for hospital re-admission, including medication and fluid delivery for dehydration, infection, seizure control, agitation, CHF, and pain episodes.

In this presentation, participants will learn how the Macy Catheter, designed for comfortable and dignified rectal administration of medication and fluids, can assist facilities by leveraging the proven benefits of the rectal route without the need for intravenous access or IV skilled staff. The lecture will provide a detailed training in how to use the catheter and how it can be easily implemented within the facility in a compliant manner.
