Use Auxiliary Labels to Prevent Injection of IV Meds Ordered for Inhalation
Orders for inhalation solutions are still causing confusion...due to hard-to-read packaging, multiple strengths, etc.
Nebulizers turn liquid meds into mist...so they go deep into lung tissue when inhaled. This can be useful for treating conditions such as asthma, COPD, and cystic fibrosis.
Be prepared to handle inhalation solutions properly.
