    We do these on our oncology unit. We have templates in place to help guide staff. The are usually 1:1 at least the first day and consecutive days they are paired with an easier patient.

    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?
