Multi-Dose Vial Infection Prevention Practices (Free)

Overview

Multi-dose vials efficiently deliver important medications and vaccines to clinics, hospitals, and other healthcare settings in large volumes. As a nurse, you need to understand how to mitigate the risks associated with this packaging to prevent infections.

Why is this course important to you?

Multi-dose vials are more susceptible to contamination when compared to single-dose vials. This is because multi-dose vials contain more than one dose of a medication, may be used for more than one person, and are accessed multiple times to draw doses of a medication. Each entry into the vial increases the risk of carrying pathogens into the medication or solution. If the multi-dose vial becomes contaminated, pathogens may easily spread from one person to the next person. To keep patients safe, there are important infection control steps to take when using multi-dose vials. 

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Differentiate between a single-dose vial and a multi-dose vial.
  • Describe five (5) CDC best practices for infection prevention when using multi-dose vials.
