Pediatric Emergency Medicine Dosing Guide

Friday, March 23, 2012 at 2:42:02 PM

A process improvement initiative created by two residents, Dr. Day and Dr. Rosato, will soon be instituted in the pediatric unit. Residents will be printing a life sustaining medications dosing guide based on age and weight for each admission, and placing it in the front of the chart to be used in the event of an emergency. The pediatric crash cart has been revised to match the medication guide. The interactive program for determining dosing is available on the UHS computer system/clinical intranet /left hand column called Pediatric E.M. Dosing Guide. The MEC commended this effort by our residents!
