Abstract:  The preparation of intravenous (IV) compounds in an acute care setting may lead to errors if safeguards are not in place. The Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP) conducted a summit on safe practices for the preparation of intravenous compounds in the fall of 2011. Invitees’ prepared guidelines were posted on ISMP’s website for further review and consensus in the late winter and spring of 2012. The final guidelines on safe practices for manually preparing IVs, use of technology in their preparation and quality control safeguards will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

       1.   Describe IV preparation errors that have been reported through the ISMP National Errors Reporting Program.
       2.   Identify safe practices for the preparation of IV compounded medications.
       3.   Apply safe practices for compounding IV medications in your organization.
