Occasionally staff may need to prepare unfamiliar injectable medicines at the patient’s bedside. These cards have been produced and validated by SPS quality assurance professionals. The cards can be printed and laminated for use wherever and whenever needed to support safe practice. They may be particularly useful to staff who have to prepare an unfamiliar presentation of a licensed medicine which is temporarily unavailable. A range of cards is also available here Preparation of injectable medicines at the ITU bedside and COVID-19: quick reference guides to support staff working in ICU during the Covid-19 emergency who may need to prepare unfamiliar injectable medicines at the patient’s bedside.
