Safe Drug Management in Anaesthetic Practice

Summary

The scope of the guidance is the safe management of drugs used during anaesthetic practice in hospitals from the time of entry of drugs into the clinical area in which they are to be used to the time at which they are administered to patients or disposed of. This document builds on existing professional standards and guidance on the storage of medicines, and makes additional recommendations about access to drugs, their security and reconciliation.
