|Kelly :||Hey Sophie what are you doing?|
|Sophie :||I’m almost done filling the daily medication request for the pediatrics’ ward.|
|Kelly:||Medicines should be dispensed in an hour. Do you need any help?|
|Sophie :||Oh, yes, please. Dr. Tim prescribed Cod liver oil emulsion for 2 weeks. The child has to take 2 teaspoons once daily. What do we have in stock?|
|Kelly :||Let’s see. We have it in 100 mL and 150 mL bottles in two flavors, strawberry and orange. One teaspoonful contains 5 mL. The total volume for the whole period of drug therapy is 140 mL.|
|Sophie :||I’ll have to dispense the 150 ml in orange flavor because the child's report says that he likes oranges.|
|Kelly :||Oh, this is the bubbly boy you met in the hospital park the other day, isn’t it?|
|Sophie :||Yes. He has an infection and is suffering from rickets due to Vitamin D deficiency.|
|Kelly :||Cod liver oil strengthens the body’s natural resistance to infection. It has high levels of Omega-3, DHA and EPA. Not to mention higher levels of Vitamins A and D in comparison to fish oil.|
|Sophie :||And fortunately with fruit flavors, the days of having a bitter pill to swallow are gone.|
|Kelly :||Yes they are.|
Think about it
