Does your hosptial/institution have restrictions on IV benzodiazepine use?

Hi All
We are seeing an increased use of IV midazolam on the acute care floors (likely due to the IV lorazepam shortage). There have been several questions on whether the use of IV benzodiazepines is restricted/allowed outside of the ICU. We currently don't have any restrictions on use (other than for continuous benzodiazepines).

Does your institution restrict how/when/where IV benzodiazepines can be used? If so, can you please share.

Hello all,

In light of news of the fatal medication event from Vanderbilt University Medical Center, I was wondering if any of you can share some error-reduction strategies you have in place at your institutions to prevent similar mix-ups. I have several to share but would like to hear from the group.
