Answer #1

1.Prescribed order of Nafcillin= 100 mg = 1000/1000 = 1g

Available dose = 1 g/tablet

Nafcillin Tablets to be given = (Prescribed dose Available dose )x Quantity of available drug

= (1g/1g ) x 1

= 1

2.Prescribed order of Sulfasalazine = 500 mg q8h

Available dose = 1.5 g/ml = (1.5 x 1000 ) per ml

= 1500 mg/ml

ml of Sulfasalazine to be given for each dose = (Prescribed dose Available dose )x Quantity of available drug

= (500 mg 1500 mg ) x 1

= 0.33 ml
