  1. Being a Clinical Pharmacist, and have worked on the dementia floor in a nursing home, I was tasked with the Medication Management of around 30-40 patients. I had a goal of reducing meds intake, 6 or less meds per patient. I was given free reign by house physicians ( that monitored the patients, per review of charts nightly). After reviewing frequent blood draws and observation physically , I would adjust dosages, or delete meds accordingly, especially atypical psychotics and sedatives needed for aggressive patients.
