Reply To: Neupogen (Filgrastim) pre-filled syringes vs vials
Hi Myra, We don’t stock pre-filled Neupogen in any our of omnicells in the Inpatient unit or Outpatient Clinic. All Neupogen/GCSF is dispensed by our pharmacy.

At your organization, we are currently discussing stocking pre-filled Neupogen (Filgrastim) syringe in the outpatient setting. We discussed the possibly of stocking inpatient vs keeping vials on the inpatient setting. At our meeting today we discussed reaching out to transplant setting. It was brought up at the meeting that there are occasions when more than one vial is needed to achieve the dosage for cell collection.
Do stock vials or pre-filled syringes in the Omnnicell for inpatient? Yes or No outpatient? Yes or No Day Hospital? Yes or No
