    We are in the middle of converting to ENFit and are going to be purchasing the Dosemate adapters to prevent mucosal injury. I was actually wondering how much these adapters are actually going to be used and whether mucosal injury has actually been a problem.

    I was wondering how everyone is administering oral medications. Does your institution stock only ENFIT oral syringes? If using ENFIT syringes do you have an adapter you use when administering oral medications? Have you seen any mucosal injuries? Many thanks for your time!

    Thank you, Adam
