Alert: Two Overdoses of Tamiflu in Pediatric Patients in Pennsylvania
Date:11/2/2009

lvania Patient Safety Authority said. "Doctors who are prescribing the Tamiflu in a liquid are unaware that the manufacturer-produced liquid form of the product is not available."

The Authority's subcontractor, the Institute for Safe Medication Practices (ISMP), alerted healthcare professionals on October 15, 2009, about the risk of overdoses and under doses.

"In light of flu season, this is a real-time problem so the Authority and ISMP are working to get the word out as quickly as possible so that healthcare professionals across the board are aware of the potential risks of compounding their own liquid form of the drug," Doering said. "Some strategies previously released by ISMP to help healthcare providers reduce and eliminate the risks are also provided in the Advisory."

The guidance includes:

For the complete 2009 November supplementary Pennsylvania Patient Safety Advisory, go to www.patientsafetyauthority.org. For more information from ISMP, go to www.ismp.org.
