I have a question about changing Injection access caps for central lines. In the INS book under injection caps it states to change per hospital protocol or at least every seven days. However, under site care and maintenance it states that â€œChange of add-on devices such as, but not limited to , extension sets, filters, stopcocks,and needleless devices should be changed with the administration set. I was wondering if you could clear this up for us.
