Keep Neuromuscular Blockers From Being Given by Mistake

You'll see more emphasis on avoiding errors with neuromuscular blockers (rocuronium, etc)...due to a string of manufacturer issues.

It's scary because these meds are used to paralyze patients for intubation or mechanical ventilation. Accidental administration is usually deadly...since patients can't speak, move, or breathe.
