    Our clinic closes at 1730. We give IV PEG over 2 hours, no post-admin observation time & IM PEG requires 1 hour observation. A provider must be present in clinic when given, and/or the “office” doctor must stay until all patients are gone. So we typically don’t give PEG after 1400-1500.

    We give during the day as well and an APP or doc must be on the unit or present in our clinic at all times.

    No policy per say, BUT due to available resources for incidentals, highly reactive meds are not given after 5

    Do any institutions have rules around timing of when highly reactive chemo such as peg can be given. We are open until 9 pm and do not have a hard and fast rule of admin time. Curious if others do?
