1. We've got a couple of patients that are getting abdominal centesis every week or so. This can be pretty time consuming and stressful to the patient/family.
We were wondering of anyone uses a permanent indwelling drain. something that could be accessed 'at home', by the nurse and drained prn?
2. Was told there are some urinary catheters that are impregnated with an antibacterial solution to minimize UTIs in patients that have long term catheters.
In the same topic does anyone have suggestions for patients that catheters that continually clog with sediment?
3. Looking for a form that documents medications left in home (acknowledge the meds left).
