This study categorizes the types of inappropriate intravenous prescriptions in hospitalized patients in China. Prescription data from 2016 were retrospectively analyzed based on predefined categories of inappropriateness. Of the 123,521 patients included, 89.2% received intravenous medications, contributing to 80% of the patients' hospital medication costs. Of significant concern, antibiotics and traditional Chinese medicines were administered to 44.3% and 14.5% of hospitalized patients, respectively. Overall, 11.4% of all intravenous prescriptions were classified as inappropriate, with improper diluent and diluent volumes being the primary cause. A team-based collaborative approach is necessary to address this widespread issue in China.
