I just wanted to post a reminder to always check your medications prior to administration. It’s not impossible for mistakes to be made. Thanks to MM list members, I have made it a habit to check everything. Recently I had an Aredia infusion that was ordered to be given over 4 hours. The hospital pharmacy typed 3 hours on the label. I told the nurse, and she went and checked the order. Sure enough, a mistake had been made and she adjusted the flow accordingly.

Something that’s really nice to have is ePocrates on your PDA. I was able to check drug interaction precautions between Thalomid and Zometa vs Aredia. None listed for Aredia, but there’s a warning for Zometa, as we know.
