Hi there- We recently moved to Pyxis on our outpatient unit. Our practice has been to hang a 50ml bag of NS on primary tubing with antibiotics hung on secondary tubing and ran via a pump. These 50ml bags came from floor stock prior to Pyxis but are now being charged out via Pyxis to the patient. Insurance companies are denying the 50ml NS bag charge. I am looking for what is best practice and where do I find documentation. We can change our practice to hanging antibiotics on primary tubing and flushing post with a syringe but I want to make sure we are not changing to this practice just because insurance companies are not reimbursing us.
Thanks in advance for your input.
