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?

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...
That would be very helpful. Thank you
