accessing impalnted portsRegister Today!
- by Sarah Breier Aug 12, '98Is anyone familiar with policies recommending a once a week reneedle to implanted ports? I am trying to justify a once a week approach to accessing an implanted port of an elderly long term home parenteral nutrition patient. Any comments would be appreciated.
