Passing the Pills to Pay the Bills

This picture captures how I felt working in nursing homes.

Most of my time was spent gathering medications.  So little time was available for slowly administering them in a kind, understanding manner.

From a medical viewpoint, this many pills are bad for anyone, never mind someone who is elderly and sick.  They interact with one another and cannot be fully absorbed.  Sometimes a patient would vomit intact pills hours after receiving medications.

This system must be changed.
