Vancomycin IV solution changed color?

  1. This is my first time posting here so hello everyone!
    So my question is i was infusing vancomycin to a patient and i return after a while to notice dicoloration to a reddish-orange color...it wasnt mixed with anything but normal saline and prior to vacomycin i administered Esomeprazole, it wasn't expired i started it at 1530hrs and it was to expire at 1800hrs same day, i informed my seniors they said they dont know and this is the first time they see this, i googled it no results, patient is totally fine, but i couldn't sleep last night worrying about it if i did something wrong, so i registered here because i always find answers here, hoping to find a comforting answer to my question. Thanks.

    Did you use the same line? I don't think vancomycin and esomeprazole are compatible (could be wrong though). Maybe that's why?

    Discoloration where? The fluid in the IV bag? In the tubing?
