Use of a Dialysis catheter (in living family donor) for other infusions - Anyone doing it?

We have a Nephrologist who would like to use the line inserted for dialysis for other infusions (hydration, antibiotics, etc.)  He states he has been heard other institutions/facilites are doing it, heard/spoke to folks at a conference ... and brought it to the committee here to develop a plan/policy to do this. 

Is anyone out there doing this?  And do you have a policy that you would be willing to share? Is there any literature out there?

You may contact me off the list if you would like

Thanks in advance
