    Dears,

    I have concern regarding dual independent check for injections in outpatient settings(zoladex,fazlodex), it's required as per ONS recommendations?
    And what is the best practice.

    Thanks

    Hello,
    In my experience Since this medications cosidered as HAM (high alert medications) in our policy We are doing the dual check.
