Infusion Related Errors Involving Switching IV Lines

Hello,
One of the administration type errors that continues to pop up for us, is the process where drug A is run at the rate intended for drug B ( and vice versa). Has anyone done any work around this or do you have a process in place that you're willing to share which results in a low error rate for this type of error.

Thanks.
