——————————————- Original Message: Sent: 1/7/2021 10:00:00 AM From: Kristen Ammon Subject: Rituximab
We are looking to streamline resources for patients receiving Rituximab outside oncology areas. Example: PICU nurse in PICU for Rituximab desensitization or Non-oncology RN on non-oncology unit with solid organ transplant patient.
Please share if your institution allows/has policy that non-oncology nurses can administer Rituximab. If you allow this, can you share any policy you have related to this drug specifically? Does your hospital/pharmacy consider Rituximab chemotherapy?
