Explain what at least 1 medication is for and tell them the doctor prescribed it because they need it. If they still refuse, Don’t push. Shortly after, try again like it’s the first time. Likely, they won’t remember they previously refused and my cooperate. Always try to build report or nurse patient relationship BEFORE trying to administer meds, establishing trust is key 🔑
