Help Combat Errors With Labor and Delivery Meds

You'll see focus on preventing errors with labor and delivery (L&D) meds...due to ISMP's top 10 med errors from 2020.

Target oxytocin first. It's a main culprit in L&D errors. Uterine overstimulation from oxytocin overdose can lead to fetal distress...uterine rupture...and maternal or fetal death.

Use a standard concentration. Consider choosing oxytocin 30 units/500 mL...so the rate in milliunits/min matches mL/hour.
