    We have gotten the protocals from each of our infusion vendors and follow their protocals for our infusion patients. The VNAA also has infusion policy and procedures manual.

    Start with AVA (american vascular assn), INS (infusion nurses society), in Canada good to go through CINA also RNAO (reg nurses assn of ontario) has a good Best Practices Guidelines that you can Google.
    There's a lot of anicdotal info out there, it helps to get fact based from these orginizations. Does your institution library subscribe to JAVA or other infusional periodicals? Good articles for research, so you have data to support your guidelines and policies.
