This may seem like a silly post for pharmacy....
Does anyone have any instructions on directing nurses on how to administer Infusions? How are they directed to administer primary versus secondary infusions.
The issue is coming up with use of Alaris pumps and guardrails to prevent alarming...then with timing of chemo/investigational meds. In order to time the infusion properly, how do you get the drug through the line when administered as a secondary...keeping in mind that the line has to be cleared of the saline or dextrose. How is the pump programmed?
Thanks in advance.
