WE are lucky to have anesthesia come to our outpatient procedure suite. When patients go from in patient to the OR however, two RNs check the chemo (verify road-map/EPIC order/actual syringe of IT chemo) and sign it off in the computer. One RN then scans it and sends the mobile med (our scanning system for medication) with the FELLOW in their hand to the OR to do the procedure.
I don’t know if that helps you or not?

We are in the process of getting ready to open our new Children’s Hospital in the early winter. We are going through workflow on chemo double checks with amongst RNs especially with IT chemo. Currently, our hem/onc clinic and our sedated procedures all happen within the same general area. In the new world, they will be seen in an outpatient clinic and then travel to a different unit (multiple floors away) for the sedated LPs. What is the workflow to ensure that chemo is safely delivered with double checks by chemo competent RNs and the chemo gets to the location of the procedure?
Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!
