Administering medication to the pediatric population is very important and is different in many ways from administering medication to adults. The child's weight is used to determine medication doses and fluid requirements. This practice, along with the use of standard medication preparations, increases the need to perform a variety of calculations to identify and verify appropriate doses and volumes. CHKD takes patient safety very seriously.
