AIV Documentation - Concentration

Question# 798

I was going over the PCP AIV package. In documentation, it states you have to document the drug concentration as well as dosage and route. In the ACR completion manual (version 3.0 2017), there is no mention of the need to document concentration. Is this an RPPEO requirement?

Answer:

While the RPPEO values the importance of accurate documentation, documentation is not meant to be an unnecessary burden to the provider. This is a provincial training package, and different base hospitals may have different interpretations and requirements. In that vein, the RPPEO does not feel it necessary to document concentration. While documenting concentration paints a more detailed picture, only dose and route are required.
