    At PCH, this is handled in the pharmacy. They mix with safflower oil, I believe.

    When you have young kids that can’t swallow Accutane (Isotrentinoin) how do you draw up?

    Our staff are drawing up with a needle from a capsule which isn’t safe….trying to see what other institutions are doing!
