    I would see about starting a peripheral line for medications or if that is not an option, consult pharmacy.

    Usually I've found it's okay to do a flush, run the med, flush, then restart the line. But if they have a lot of meds (ie. Antibiotics, etc) we collaborate with the RD to alter the TPN/lipid rate to compensate for the lost TPN infusion time (increase the TPN rate as it will only run maybe 20 hours total).
