Port Needle Changes

Our policy is a needle change/new dressing every 7 days.  No change that I'm aware of...

No change. There is not enough evidence to have any statement in the INS SOP regarding frequency of changing port access needles, so it remains at 7 days. Same frquency for changing the dressing.
