23.4% Sodium Chloride Storage

We have limited storage of 23.4% sodium chloride to pharmacy, but are continuing to receive requests to have it available for emergent use in the NeuroICU, ED, and IR.

We are interested in learning about safety strategies employed by others who have elected to make these available via an automated dispensing cabinet outside of pharmacy.

Thank you for any information you have to share about your experience.
