We are in the process of rewriting policies and procedures and my manager asked me to pose a couple of questions to the Group-
What is the process at your facility for ordering routine flushes for INTs, PICCs and CVPs?
Is it a specific MD order?
Is it automatically tied to an order set?
Or is it considered a nursing measure?Â
At your facility are routine flushes documented in the Nurses Notes or on the Medication Administration Record?
