1. Is changing an S/P tube dressing a sterile procedure?
    One book I have says yes, but everyone tells me no.

    I would say that it is a "clean" procedure.

    Not a sterile procedure...use aseptic technique but no need to use sterile drapes, gloves,etc. Hardly anything is a sterile procedure these days.

    This is the difference in real world and textbook....It's a clean procedure.
