Abstract: A poster presentation on developing a standard guidance for IV medications at ward level. Introduction: Safe and effective administration of IV medications is key to patient safety. Lack of timely access to knowledge at the point of care is one of the problems affecting safety and quality in medication administration and monitoring. It is essential that healthcare professionals have access to concise and easy to use information to ascertain safe and appropriate use of products. There is a need within an organization for a guidance to standardise use of IV medications. In the main acute hospital in Malta—Mater Dei Hospital, preparation of IV medications is carried at ward level and no special unit or guidelines are present to aid in this practice. Aims: To introduce a standard guidance to reduce preventable medication administration errors and evaluate the developed monographs.
