I was looking for references regarding the use and storage of normal saline once opened in the home care setting. I know that ns was only "good" for 24hrs in the hospital setting. However, I have gotten conflicting information regarding its use in home care. Some resources I have seen say that ns is usable for 7days after opening while others state that a bottle of ns can be used for 30 days. Can anyone shed some light?
Thanks for your help.
