In King Faisal Specialist Hospital & research Center We where surveyed by the Joint Commission International (JCI) couple of months back, one of their findings was related to the labeling of high alert medications in the code boxes (crash carts) with a High Alert Stickers/ labels.
Currently we do not mandate labeling the high alert medications in the crash carts with a High Alert sticker/ label, knowing that almost all the medications in the crash cart are high alert and the whole code situation is a high risk critical situation.
1- Do you require labeling the high alert medications in the crash cart with the hospital approved High Alert sticker/ label ?
2- How do you store the code medications, in a separate traditional code box, or your crash cart had a special drawer to place the code medications in it.
Highly appreciate your feedback
