Subject
Administration Of IV Drugs
Description

The information i require from your Health Authority is firstly, does your critical care unit double check or single check IV drug administrations?

More importantly, in order for me to conduct a more robust risk assessment, if single checking is the practice within your trust, have there been any increase in drug errors/near misses?

 

Response

At our Trust we double check all medications in critical care except topical medicines.
