    Regarding #1
    That is a routine standing order at our facility on wednesday afternoon shift according to the CNA staff. Wed eve is when the Nurses give all the residents their suppositories and put them all to bed so the MN shift has a supprise when they come in. I've had complaints about this all week.

    I know a few docs that needs to read rule #1 before they write orders for their pts. Nothing like being a continent person, and waking up in a pile of poo.
