Brief Overview and Setting
The purpose of this activity is to allow students to practice intravenous (IV) product verification. Students have had exposure to outpatient prescription verification and in this activity, students practice the skill in the setting of IV final product verification. This activity currently takes place in the laboratory curriculum at The Ohio State University with approximately 130 students per year in the second and third professional year of a 4-year pharmacy curriculum. In the students’ P2 year they are introduced to IV products, labels, and the skill of sterile product verification during a 1-hour laboratory lecture. In P2 laboratory activities, students perform IV product verification with physical products such as the drug vial, infusion fluid, syringes (with the pull-back method of verification), diluent (if used), and label (both production and bag label). During the P3 year, students complete IV product verification through simulated activities completed electronically. In these activities, students gain experience where they check if the product is compounded using appropriate products. Additionally, students verify if a correct beyond use date is used. This chapter will describe how to set up the live in-person verification as well as the electronic IV verification.
