Hi Carly, We administer Dinutuximab in our Oncology wards. We have a staffing ratio of 1:1. We have created a medication admin template for staff to follow to support them when administering. We find the patients can be quite busy and unpredictable so having a 1:1 ensure the patient an nurse is well supported Hope that helps

I wanted to do some benchmarking and get a better sense of what other oncology units are doing for Dinutuximab infusions. Are these infusions typically done in the PICU or on the oncology unit? If on the oncology unit, are there any specific precautions and/or does your unit have a particular RN to patient radios that you require?
