As health- care workers, we do all sorts of things to ensure the safety of our patients, yet for some reason we fail to protect them on a basic level of securing their safety while they're in our centers. I have my con- cealed carry and do not hesitate to carry on my off time. However, due to restrictions at work, I have to leave my weapon elsewhere. I consider myself and my co-workers to be sitting ducks just waiting to be picked off by someone who holds a grudge for any reason. It would be nice to let them know prior to entering the facility that someone may be shooting back! Debbie Teetzel, RN, MSN Rocky Mountain Surgery Center, Englewood, Colo. deborah.teetzel@hcahealthcare.com Warning: 'Someone May Be Shooting Back' For the Record ◗ Tri-Moxi and/or Tri-Moxi+Vanc are the names of the compounded proprietary formulations that oph- thalmologists inject into the vitreous during drop- less cataract surgery. We misidentified the drug names in "Dropless" Cataract Surgery — Will it Work? (August, p. 42). Tri-Moxi has 1 antibiotic (moxifloxacin hydrochloride). Tri-Moxi+Vanc has 2 antibiotics (moxifloxacin hydrochloride and van- comycin). The steroid in both compounded formu- lations is triamcinolone acetonide.
