ISMP recommends to "Embed safety strategies for potassium chloride for injection concentrate and other concentrated electrolytes such as magnesium sulfate injection..."
For our system, we've attempted to safely limit storage to emergency carts or pharmacy. However, there is a recent request to consider allowing the 50% vial to be included in a Pre-Eclampsia/Eclampsia kit in OB.
1. Where does your system allow storage of concentrated magnesium?
2. Do you have any successful safeguards you've implemented in OB to support ready access to concentrated magnesium for IM use in the event of IV inaccessibility? (e.g., put the vial in a bag and label "For IM use ONLY")?
Appreciate your thoughts!
