​Correct dosing of many high-risk drugs relies on critical parameters such as patient weight and laboratory values that reflect renal function. Use weight-based dosing scales for medications that should be dosed based on patient weight.  Consult latest literature.

 

Tips

  • Include calculation aids so staff will not need to make any manual calculations for determining dosages.
