Split Dosing

This template identifier is used to identify medication administration events that require special processing to handle split dosing. The parent template is A split dose is often used when different dosages are given at different times (e.g., at different times of day, or on different days). This may be to account for different metabolism rates at different times of day, or to simply address drug packaging deficiencies (e.g., and order for Coumadin 2mg on even days, 2.5mg on odd days is used because Coumadin does not come in a 2.25mg dose form).

In this case a subordinate <substanceAdministration> entry is required for each separate dosage.
