Quote from AmyLiz
Our unit does the same thing. We have 2K+, 2.25Ca++ pumped through the wall. We use the gallon jugs though for everything else. And yep, we mark the jugs that we add mix to with black marker (big letters, etc).
We used to just do the black marker thing, but found that the wide band of yellow tape in ADDITION was even better... made it far more noticable. And anytime we add a packet of any kind, we are required to attach the empty packet to the jug with time, date, and initials, (kind of as you would add a sticker to an IV bag that you added something to)..as it is still considered a med.
We have about 6 patients or more who are on K+3 baths, so we keep these larger jugs filled, taped, and marked, and ...
... carry them up from the babsement every day... that's where the drum is kept that we fill them from.
Can't wait for our new clinic... no more basement... no more carrying up bags of bicarb, , 30 pound jugs of K+3, and all those boxes of saline and dialyzers from the basement !!!
So AmyLiz.... how's it GOING !!!???
Are you learning much? Are you liking it so far???
