I am looking for some references to support a practice change that would
require all pediatric medication orders to include the dosing method
(e.g., mg/kg, etc) along with the calculated dose for the patient. Does
anyone know of any? I know this is standard practice in pediatric
facilities but I would like some evidence based references.
