Editor’s Extra’s

Retrospectoscope

Was the real driver behind resident work hour reform, avoidance of house staff unionization?

FDA warning issued for Simply Thick in preterm infants due to 15 cases of late onset NEC

Clinicians advised not to administer Simply Thick to infants under 37 weeks gestation

Standard concentrations of Neonatal Drug Infusions (from the ISMP & VON – click here for chart)

We wonder if you see any problems with this “universal” standards list (click here for 4 question survey)?

The FDA National Drug Shortages Web List

This is where you’ll find the details on drug shortages of PGE, NeoProfen etc., (so you’ll have some idea how much longer you’ll have to live without it).

This is a relatively recent ISMP evaluation of the impact of drug shortages on health care quality.
