Medication Administration: Now & STAT Orders
by Cathy Parkes October 04, 2021 Updated: December 29, 2021
"Now" and "STAT" orders are similar, but have different time-frames for administration. Both need to be given quickly, but a "now" order should be given within 60 - 90 minutes while a STAT order must be given immediately (such as during a code blue).
