Policy/Procedure Help

We have a group of physicians that order some unusual meds for skilled nursing facility residents.  Can anyone provide policies and/or procedures on preparation and/or administration of bumetadine (bumex), diuril (chlorthiazide), and colchicine? 

Bumex is listed in Gahart's
Bumex is listed in Gahart's Intravenous Medications published by Mosby and is a diuretic. Monitoring, precautions, etc are included in the monograph. Diuril and colchicine are not listed in the published book but information can be found on the website listed in the book. Lynn
