I am presently doing research on Phenergan IV for our facility. Totally, I am against giving IV Phenergan. As a PICC team in our facility, we are being paged to place peripherals or powerglides for patients that are receiving Phenergan IV. Even with ultrasound usage, I am finding it takes several sticks to place peripherals or powerglides on these patients. My question is "Are there any facilities that have ceased giving Phenergan IV completely?" I have heard in our state that some facilities are no longer giving Phenergan IV. I would appreciate responses to this.
