Giving Medication to Children - LevelUpRN

Educate families that when giving medication to children, they must use a calibrated device (such as a dropper, syringe, or medication cup), NEVER a kitchen teaspoon, at eye level.

Also, never mix liquid medicine into a whole baby bottle, but rather a small amount (1 tsp) of liquid or soft food.
