The aim of this study was to evaluate the intravenous admixture practice in some major hospitals around Tripoli city, the awareness of the personnel involved with the good practice of this type of services and, how for pharmacists were involved. The study involved field visits along with the distribution of questionnaire form to a group of physicians, nurses and pharmacists in the evaluated hospitals which were; Tripoli Medical Center (T.M.C, hospital A), Tripoli Central Hospital (T.C.H, hospital B), Jalaa Children Hospital (J.C.H, hospital C), Burn and Plastic Surgery Hospital (B&P.S.H, hospital D) Abu-Seta Chest Hospital (A.C.H, hospital E). The questions revolved around, which personnel involved with this practice and their level of knowledge about the good I.V. admixture practice, the procedures, tools, and the environmental conditions used for admixture preparation, in addition, reviewing some examples of routinely added drugs and types of I.V. fluids used, for any potential of incompatibilities.
