Just wondering if anyone out there has an actual protocol and/or general recommendations on what to do with a line that is found without an injection cap on the end. (i.e. It has been sitting open to air for who knows how long?) A nurse called us with this exact thing and asked us to come assess the line. Do we recommend an antibiotic lock or should this line be pulled? Also, what about when a line is broken but repairable? Do you repair it and then proceed with a lock as it did have a hole in it prior to repair and could have potentially been exposed to an infection? Hope this makes sense and thanks for any input you may have.
