Very informative!!! I'm curious. Why do ya'll not use a line for TPN and Meds simotaneously? We do this all the time, I was shocked when I saw you say once a line was used for meds, it couldn't be used again for TPN. Just curious

I understand that the oncology service in our hospital actually does mix meds in line with TPN, but this is black heresy where I work. Usually provokes the infamous "concerned" response, as in "We're concerned about your understanding of our policies...", followed by burning at the stake...
