We currently are caring for these patients in PICU 1:1, however we have had great success with educating our floor oncology nurses and they float over to care for these patients in the PICU. We are hoping to begin administering 1;1 on the floor next year. For us it has become a budget issue related to having 1;1 nursing on the floor.

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?
