Last night I had a baby with a med ordered IV, that had always been ordered IV. In the med drawer, however, were a bunch of doses drawn up in those ExactaMed oral syringes that don't fit our IV tubing, but labeled [med name] Inj. We use different labels for PO and IV meds, and these had the PO labels, even though it said Inj. When I called pharmacy I was told that the PO and IV form were exactly the same, like literally they just draw from the same vial no matter whether it's ordered PO or IV. Obviously I made him send me new (correct) syringes, but I can't decide if he was telling the truth or just covering for the mistake. Maybe I'm being dim, but that seems weird to me. Can anyone speak to that? Are there really meds that can be PO or IV from the same vial with no changes in dose or additives/dilutents or anything?
