Hi all -
For those of you placing a Biopatch at the time of insertion, are you routinely doing a 24 or 48 hour dressing change? At my facility, we routinely change the dressing every 7 days. I'd like to know what the "community" at large is practicing.
(I changed our policy over 2 years ago, My hospital management is inquiring why we no longer perform 24 hour dressing changes) I believe there is good evidence to back this practice up as well as substantial cost savings.
Thanks in advance for your help.
