We are in the process of looking at several of our policies and protocol for Pediatric PIV. Few questions to the group
1) Does anyone have an algorithm for # of attempts for Pediatric IV insertion?
2) Is every using Tegaderm over the site? We are trialing the Pedi Stat Lock-anyone have expereince or like another product?
3) Do you use a filter set on the end of your continuous IV tubing for children less than 30 days?
