Keep Certain Products Off Patient Care Units

Certain meds should only be stocked in the pharmacy...since they may cause serious harm if administered directly to patients.

Glacial acetic acid, which is acetic acid 99.5% or greater, can cause serious burns if an UNdiluted form is applied to the skin or mucous membranes.

Stock glacial acetic acid only in the compounding area of your pharmacy...or better yet, work with your admin or pharmacist to eliminate it from your stock completely.
