Find Out if Your Pharmacy Has Special Arrangements for Managing Antidote Stock
Time is of the essence when it comes to orders for antidotes.
These meds can counteract dangerous effects of other meds and toxins...but administration delays may lead to patient harm or even death.
Be familiar with antidotes in your hospital. For example, flumazenil reverses benzodiazepines...glucagon reverses beta-blockers...naloxone reverses opioids...and vitamin K reverses warfarin.
