    Hey Lance, I still look forward to your website and monthly updates, now that I no longer teaching in simulation. One note about Demo Dose relates to realism. I use to order many of their products, but one of my Nursing Instructor colleagues asked not to use the products due to the misspelling of names (atropin). I know they purposely spell the products; but my colleague stated it sets a bad example to students to use misspelled products as we teach them to use the 7 rights for medication admin and incorrect spelling would lead to not using a product in reality. I thought she was being picky, but after some thought I had to agree. So you may want to pass this note on, or not. However I want to say even on the west coast of Canada, we loved using PN and order there exclusively, just not these products. Thanks Lance and keep up the great work; it’s too important to stop publishing.

    Trevor: Thank you for the Demo Dose feedback. The main reason the products are misspelled is to prevent entry into real product supply chain. Not only do we sell the products to schools, but also hospital simulation labs. Also, since products do not contain active ingredients they cannot be labeled by the “real” name. Thank you for supporting a nurse owned and operated company! Deborah
