    I am an oncology nurse <2 years. I give out zofran all day to some patients on the med-surg half of floor.</p>

      inhalation of an alcohol swab will prevent nausea or vomiting. It tends to work faster than zofran or phenergan. There is an issue of scope of practice though since it could be considered a medication which would be outside our scope. I tend to argue against considering it to be a med since patients are incidentally inhaling ipa already when we are sterilizing their skin or iv hubs.
