Who mixes the pitocin with the IV solution?

  1. Hi I am a student nurse here. Who mixes the pitocin with the isotonic solution. Can the nurse, or does it have to be pharmacy? It is a question on my report that I am having trouble finding the answer to. Thanks

    I think the Pharmacy usually does it. RNs can do it, but it depends on that particular hospitals protocol about such things.

    A licensed Registered Nurse can do it as long as there is a doctor's order for it.
