Time out before intravitreal injections

OMIC has received reports of “wrong” events associated with intravitreal injections. These include wrong condition, wrong dose, wrong drug, wrong eye, and wrong patient.

To ensure that the correct drug and dose are injected into the correct eye every time, the ophthalmologist needs to lead a time out before each injection. A time out provides the opportunity to confirm that the patient, medical record, and ophthalmologist are in agreement.

Time out before intravitreal injections is a sample protocol that can help prevent errors.
