Hi everyone!

I'm a new(ish) RN working in the ER at a pediatric hospital. Today I almost made a huge medication error while setting up the 2 bag system for a 12 year old patient in DKA, luckily the 2 RN verification process stepped in and the error was prevented. However, I'm pretty shaken up and want to avoid making mistakes like this in the future. Does anyone know of any websites where I can find practice worksheets for calculating/titrating the 2 bag system? I'm having trouble finding any good ones on Google.

Thank you!!

Also wishing everyone well throughout all of this covid madness

Reach out to your nursing staff educator- they may have some resources available.
