Rocuronium Effectiveness

Hello Everyone,

Our anesthesiologists reported that the rocuronium was not effective when used at appropriate doses in three different patients, requiring a second dose. We typically buy rocuronium by auromedics. Has anyone heard of any issues using this manifacturer at your institutions?

Thank you,
