In brief: Dobutamine
We usually would not administer Dobutamine in a nursing home setting.
It needs to be closely monitored and this monitoring is usually not possible in a nursing home. Dobutamine is usually given for acute hemodynamic instablity and this is again not usually a nursing home treatment.

In brief: No
No , the patient should be more closely monitored than the nursing home staffing usually allows.
