Vital Sign Monitoring for Rituxan and other antibodies and for Taxanes

  • 1.  Vital Sign Monitoring for Rituxan and other antibodies and for Taxanes

    Posted 01-29-2018 19:37

    Looking for help with what large outpatient infusion centers do in regards to monitoring patients with Taxol, Rituxan and Daratumumab, (and other antibodies)

     

    We are looking to standardize across our academic center and health systems, but also find there is a wide range of discrepancy as to monitoring. Is it vital signs? Can monitoring look like nurses using critical thinking and assessment to either include vital signs or other assessments?

     

    Thank you,

    Sherry

    I developed a Quick Reference Sheet for out and inpt nurses that lists the various medications ,the premeds /if needed and frequency of monitoring. It started out with just Rituxan and Taxol and as you can imagine it has grown tremendously from 1 side of 1 page to now 4.5 pages...I would be happy to share it with you and others...

    I you very much like to review the Quick Reference Sheet.  It sounds as though it would be very useful for our Radiation Oncology Nurses who see many patients who are receiving many of these medications.

    Hello Group,
    Nancy I would be also interested in your Quick Reference Guide for different drugs and or direct me to an article. Thanks so much for your input. I am updating our Rituximab protocol and am trying to match ours with the package insert. I think I have it, yet would like what you have discovered.
