Insulin charts come into force in NSW

NSW Health has enforced insulin prescription charts within its hospitals in a bid to minimise prescribing errors. 

Developed by the ACEI Endocrine Network the chart combines subcutaneous insulin prescription and administration with blood glucose, ketone monitoring and glycaemic management. 

Intended for adult inpatients the charts aim to “minimise delays in management decisions and provide clear guidelines for patients on subcutaneous insulin,” a NSW Health communication said.
