Sentinel Event Alert, Issue 34: Preventing vincristine administration errors

July 14, 2005

This Sentinel Event Alert has been retired. Current guidance is provided in the Institute for Safe Medication Practices’ (ISMP) September 2013 advisory, and its 2016-2107 Targeted Medication Safety Best Practices for Hospitals. Also see the World Health Organization’s July 2007 alert, which endorses the practice of using minibags instead of syringes for dispensing vincrinstine.
