May I ask from the members what is the legal standing of the hospital's P&P with the use of the smaller size syringe to instill tPA, < 10cc syringe, if it caused a ruptured catheter or clot embolus? Would this P&P, support or protectÂ the nurse for occurence if it happened?
I am trying to change our practice to use the recommended size (10ss syringe) to instill the tPA. But I am having difficulty to change the practice cuz, nothing happened bad yet for all this years we been doing with smaller size syringe. I know the INS recommended 10cc syringe, but can't convince the heads for looking to change. Any casesÂ that any one of you can share, thatÂ I could get to be more effective to bring to the table?
