Rho(D) Immune Globulin

IVIG (Privigen) Reactions

Kara Thornton's picture



We've seen a noticeable increase in reactions to IVIG, from patients who have previously tolerated it. We seem to have identified one lot number that has been in common for all but one of them. We've contacted the manufacturer about it, but I was curious if anyone else has gotten reports of similar increases?

Scope of Practice - Rho(D) Immune Globulin administration (LPN / MA)

Hi again!
One more question for the group...

Who is permitted (or restricted) from administering Rho(D) Immune Globulin in the ambulatory / outpatient clinic space?

Do you require RN administration?
Is this within the scope of practice for an LPN?
(...We recognize that this scope of practice for LPNs could differ from state to state, but are still interested)
Are Medical Assistants permitted to administer Rho(D) Immune Globulin?

Thanks so much in advance for your response!
