An out patient infusion is getting vancomycin 1500 mg in 250ml once a day. Does anyone know if this can still be given over one hour in a central line.

with that much volume an hour to an hour and a half is either here nor there. I used to give a gm of vanco in 100ccs. Now if they have that pale erythmototic look or have multiple allergies you might reconsider. You're probably more likely to send them into cardiac aresst than redman syndrome.
