We use a CADD pump to administer Cloxacillin IV for 4-6 weeks (q 6 hours) and we are noticing a lot of occlusions with this even if we flush the line with 30 cc of NS once a day with the change of bag. The pump is set to administer 1cc/hour to keep vein open instead of the usual 0.4cc.
Do you have issues with occlusion and cloxacillin administration, if not, how do you administer it?
Thanks a lot,
