Controlled Substance Continuous Infusion - Bolus Dose High Alert Dual Verification

Hi all,

Can you share your dual verification practices for a prn controlled substance pump bolus dose from a continuous infusion (non-PCA)? For example, at initial administration, dose change, at shift change, new syringe, change in pump, at every pump bolus administered, etc.

Thank you,
Brennan
