Line Tracing Labels for IV Infusion
Wed, 11/12/2008 - 12:13pm
Medi-Dose / EPS has developed a unique High-Alert Line Tracing Label to call attention to medication requiring special handling both in the pharmacy and at the patient's bedside. The Pharmacy places the entire label on an IV infusion container or its overwrap; then, when the medication is administered at the bedside, nursing applies the two IV line labels to each end of the IV tubing. This facilitates easy line traces, improves accuracy and minimizes IV line confusion. Labels are available for Heparin, Insulin, Epidural, Chemo, Paralytic, Narcotic, Oxytocin, Magnesium Sulfate and IV Nutrition. A "blank" option is also available.
