- Jul 22, '12 by marycarneymy routine - after a near miss - is this. as soon as i have the drug in my hand after removing it from the drawer, i hold it up to the screen, compare the label to the screen and then say the name of the drug out loud. you are then engaging your eyes, ears, voice and hands in the process of drug verification.
- Jul 22, '12 by cosmicmamaThe Pyxis should be reprogrammed to require a witness to pull something as dangerous as sux. That is how it is at our facility. Also, in my L&D unit, we have to have a witness to pull Mag and Pitocin for pregnant patients.
- Jul 22, '12 by dudette10I have no idea why it was in our Pyxis, and I also had no idea it needs to be refrigerated. When we call Code Blue, one of the kits that the ICU nurse or RT brings contains sux (which is also not refrigerated), so why would floors need it available?
