Randy Wheat, RN, shared details from his experience putting together his own home security alarm system at the Feb. 7, 2018 Caregivers lunch meeting.

He said about the time one drug is labeled and contained, another is taking its place. The latest craze that came up in discussion, is grape Gatorade with Benadryl poured into it, and drinking Imodium. - Linda Waggener
