Watch for Standardized Compounded Oral Liquid Concentrations
You'll see a push to standardize compounded ORAL liquid concentrations to help prevent med errors during transitions of care.
American Society of Health-System Pharmacists' "Standardize 4 Safety" initiative hopes to improve patient safety...by recommending a list of standard concentrations for about 30 compounded oral liquids.
The move to standardize makes sense. Dosing errors continue to occur when patients get switched from one concentration to another...especially when patients go into or out of the hospital.
