I can't clarify my hospitals exact policy not being at work to look it up - but I think it depends what drug we are talking about and a lot of nurses I work with mix for example ativan with saline always - guess thats how they were taught - even though all our patients have double lumen hickmans -so it's not a vein irritation issue.
