i am hoping everyone will come to my aid again. you guys are great resources!! last night i had a patient who was to be started on a natrecor drip. i work med-surg and haven't heard of one of these drips before. i called the coordinator/supervisor and she said she didn't know much, pharmacy couldn't find the policy and procedure, and the doc thought we were perfectly capable of monitoring her on our floor but gave me the okay for transfer. we were finally able to convince the coordinator to give us an imcu bed for this patient.
so i guess my question would be, what is everyone else's policy and procedure. and any info you would be willing to share on this drug would be appreciated.
